I must confess that I do not see the relationship between the use of the
back button and the live update of only certains parts of a page.

If you only need live updates, then I would say that SeasideAsync  
would do
the work, but no more. Scriptaculous is more ambitious and more heavy  
Seaside supports live updates of multiple areas in the page as well  
as nesting
of live updated areas and is available for both the classic and the  
canvas api's.

If you load SeasideAsync into your image, you will find some  
examples. You may
want to use those examples to get started.
