I need to write a javascript that will read another html file... and will update it on the screen.

Specifically, I have a txt/html file that changes every second on the server side and I'd like the javascript to read the file and alter the webpage. I do not want to just keep reloading the page as that causes a lot of hits, it doesn't look too aesthetically pleasing, and it makes little clicky noises on most browsers. Plus having it done this way I think I'll be able to setup a better display area and other fields on the page.

So... is there a way to read in a text/html file, insert it into a webpage with javascript, and have it automatically update every second.
