How will you communicate with PHP without submitting an HTTP request of 
some sort?  So, really, you will need to submit -something-, though it 
could be GET data, POST data, or COOKIE data.

You can't have JavaScript talk to PHP "within the same page" since the 
webserver/PHP "forgets" all information related to that page as soon as 
it shoots it to the user-agent.

I'm assuming you know how to use JavaScript to set a cookie, and/or make 
a new request with GET or POST data attached.  If not, let me know.
