Refresh MySQL data in table without refreshing entire page

I have the following code that creates a table based upon several MySQL queries.  I need the queries to refresh every 30 sec without refreshing the entire table.  I am told that this is possible with Javascript or AJAX, but I don't know enough to do this.  Any help would be appreciated

I use the Prototype JS library for my AJAX processing (http://prototypejs.org).

The Ajax.PeriodicUpdater facility is probably the perfect fit.

http://www.prototypejs.org/learn/introduction-to-ajax and look down to "Automate requests with the Ajax.PeriodicalUpdater"

Why not try using an iframe?  Then you can just have the meta refresh tag fire a new inner page every 30 seconds.  Easy!
