how to POST form data using startDownload() method?

I want to POST a form and retreive the data without refreshing the current page i'm in.

situation:
To retreive the form i used the startDownload method
(info: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/behaviors/reference/methods/startdownload.asp )

and posted this html-code to a DIV (using innerHTML)

now i'd like to post the data(GET is impossible due to data length) but only refresh the DIV info and NOT the whole HTML page.
Is this possible using the startDownload() method? alternative(s)?

Anyone has some suggestions?

thx in Advance!

Well you really can't post form data without a refresh. The only thing that I can think of is to use frames. That way, only part of the page will need to refresh.
