Load target page info with no refresh

Hello Experts,

I have two pages, test.asp and test2.asp. I have a static menu on test.asp (Page 1), just basic internal urls.  When I click on a link, I would like to reload test.asp (Page 1) with the data from test2.asp (Page 2) without refreshing.

Thanks in advance!

this definately sounds like a job for Javascript.. what information do you want/need to make this work?

Basically I would like a working example for the pages.
This should do the job, I have tested it in FF2 & IE6, of course you should add doctypes and the likes to suit your site

  <script language="JavaScript">
var CallbackElementID;	
function GetXmlHttpObject(handler) { 
	var objXMLHttp = null;
	if (window.XMLHttpRequest) { objXMLHttp = new XMLHttpRequest();	} // firefox & Mozilla based browsers
	else if (window.ActiveXObject) {	objXMLHttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");	} // Internet Explorer based browsers
	return objXMLHttp;
function fnSearchSKUCallback()  { // XMLhttp callback function
	if (xmlHttp.readyState==4 || xmlHttp.readyState=="complete") { 
	CallbackElementID.innerHTML = xmlHttp.responseText;
function LoadContent(elementID, url) {
	CallbackElementID = document.getElementById(elementID); 
	xmlHttp = GetXmlHttpObject();
	xmlHttp.onreadystatechange=fnSearchSKUCallback;	// set the callback function (the function called when the status changes, ie the page loads)

 <div id="contentdiv">
   <a href="JavaScript:LoadContent('contentdiv', 'test2.asp')">test</a>
