Default Auto-refresh user control in .NET 1.1


I am developing a web application in .NET 1.1.
I would like to know if there is any way to make an user control auto-refresh after a set interval.
I don't want the entire page to get refreshed as there are other controls in the page.

After searching a bit in the net i came across this: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300">.
But again this will refresh the entire page. There were suggestions of storing the values of other controls in the page in session variables and then restore them after refresh.
Another approach i came across was using frames. I believe using frames is not the coolest way to design your web pages.

Is there any other easier way to achieve this?
Thanks in advance for your help.

This is the very kind of idea AJAX can accomplish. The problem is that the ASP.NET ajax support exists in .NET 2.0+ but not 1.1. However, that doesn't not prevent you from writing custom client code to do this sort of thing, it's just a bit more complicated. Is there any possibility of upgrading to ASP.NET 2.0 or 3.5 (which has far better AJAX support built in)?

I know about the AJAX support in .NET 2.0+, but unfortunately it would not be possible at this time to upgrade to higher versions.

Can you please elaborate on writing the client code by giving a small code example? Else can you provide me some links where i can get detailed information on this.
