[pmwiki-users] How to make a live chat box

I have an input box in my sidebar through which people can enter chat  
messages. The text is saved on a page, and the most recent lines  
appear below the box in the sidebar. Unfortunately, you only see each  
person's response when you manually refresh the page.

Maybe there is a way to put in the sidebar box Dimdim or something  
like it. But I'd be happy to use the chat mechanism I've already made  
- if the chat text would only refresh itself.

I don't know much about html or frames, but I've heard that one can  
make a frame that refreshes automatically. (I would only want the chat  
text to refresh.)

How would I adapt PmWiki's default skin to create a live chat box?
