Changing Contents of A Web Page's Table Cell

Hello Experts,

I created an aspx web page that uses a table for layout. I'd like to change the contents of a particular cell every 10 seconds or so, somewhat in the same way that the aspx AdRotator control is able to change it's contents. Is this a difficult thing to do? As far as I've read, the AdRotator control works only with images (not a tiny weather widget script which is what I'd like to change) and only when a page is reloaded. I'm thinking the fact that I'm using a table is probably irrelevant and that my question boils down to "how can I change my page's content in the manner described?" Thanks in advance for any light you can shine my way.

You can assign a specific id to the table cell, and then use the innerHtml property to change its content whenever required.

<td id="someName"></td>

in Javascript:
document.getElementById('someName').innerHtml = 'New content';
