I was under the inpression that PHP would refresh dynamically and not necessarily the whole page. When I make forms in PHP I am noticing the entire page gets refreshed before the new content is displayed. this is the oppsite of what I am trying to acheive. If I wanted that result I would just make 2 HTML pages. An example is on my own site right noe mtechenterprises.com. What language will give me what I want?
If you go down the ajax route, I'd recommend using jquery as this provides a very user-friendly method of dealing with requests and responses.
