Thanks all for the good help.

The biggest thing was just to realise that AJAX is essentially just a
set of methods for asynchronous updates to quickly update locally small
parts of a web page from very small server transactions. (OK, so who's
confused now!? :-) )

A link I've read through that was most useful is:
which gives a verbose but good 'story'.

is usefully much more brief!

This is to try to 'quickly' put together a simple control panel to
twiddle a server-side application from web browsers on remote machines.
This is ideal for avoiding any hassles about whether Linux or Windows or
Macs or whatever are to be used remotely. Looks good thus far.

Next is to try some coding...

Thanks for the Simple AJAX Code-Kit (SACK) link:

Cheers all,
