Well, it's a matter of interpretation, isn't it? Given his vague
requirements above, it's quite valid to assume that he wants to avoid
the effects of the browser loading a new page, even if that page looks
like the previous one a lot. You may be quite right in your *guess*
that he doesn't need that, but there isn't enough information present in
his request for either of us to know.
(But you're quite correct *if he doesn't care about refreshing the
window when the form is submitted* that Ajax is overkill. I should
probably have asked for more detail in the question before suggesting Ajax.)
