I need a way to import plain text from a text file using Javascript or another easy way, so as not to blog down my site with ASP or other things, so I can import just one line of text from a TXT file to a place in my html file, so I can daily update something with having to do the whole file and multiple files.

Here's the site, I know they have to be grabbing this from some where else too because the images are in english:

I am not sure what you are asking , you want to use javascript ? wrong forum , you want to grab a page with PHP ? right forum :D

I think you will find if your page already has any server-parsed content it will be quicker to use a PHP include than a client side javascript to inlclude any content.

can you be more specific with your requirements ?

Sorry about that, I just copied my original post from the last one and pasted it here, I forgot that I had the javascript word in it, all I want to do is to take some information from the site I have pasted up above and display it on my site, kind of like grabbing it and reformating it for my site then displaying it on my site, these are daily stock quotes for coffee, and maybe even the images, even though I don't need all the javascript image map options that their page has?
