I need an AJAX based solution to be able to have a web browser page call a script on the server (already exists and returns value within valid XML) every 15 seconds that will return a number of messages a user has in their account.
If the value returned is greater than 0, the page will display "Messages ($value)" and will blink. Additionally the browser tab should blink with the the message "Unread Messages ($value)".
If the value returned is less than 1, the script will show "Message (0)" and not blink.
