Data Grids with AJAX, DHTML and JavaScript

In order to be presented effectively, information needs structure. The more intuitive data structure is designed, the better users can understand the content.

Used for its original purpose - to present data, not to style it -, it can convey ideas effectively. And this is what most of us are actually trying to achieve in the Web.
