You can achieve this by sending pieces of javacript whenever you want to update something (like a progress bar or whatever). You also need to be able to flush the output buffer to apache, (my setup seems to do this implicitly ?) otherwise i would've tried req.flush(). Works on major browsers, just make sure you send <script> tags everytime for this is needed by NN4 (or later?). baz.
