You need to specify somewhere what element to change, right?

- You can either do that by sending back a javascript that does the
update of the particular element. In this case you would replace
"html: [ :r | .. ]" with something like "script: [ :s | s << (s
jQuery: '.someid') html: DateAndTime now ]". This is very powerful,
but also a bit complicated.

- Or (and this is probably what you want) you can use the ajax-loader
on the particular DOM node. So just replace "html jQuery ajax" with
"(html jQuery: '.someid') load".
