The above is correct although refreshing the whole page may be like taking
an axe to the problem. Sridhar, I mean no offence by that - you answered
the question that was asked. LiveEvil is far too cool to be used to
refresh the whole page ;-).

LiveEvil actually allows you to update specific parts of the page; the
rest of the page is left unchanged. That tends to produce a much better
user experience as there is less "flicker" on the page.

The main demonstration of LiveEvil is chatola - included in the Nevow
releases (latest is 0.3). Another LiveEvil example is the incredibly dull
itsalive (.tac and .html) in sandbox/mg (available in the Nevow SVN

Hope this help.

Cheers, Matt
