I'm not following your PHP code here that well, but I have a different  
suggestion. Rather than reloading the entire list, try removing the  
element that's been deleted using Prototype locally (not bothering the  
database for a completely new list).

So your list would look like this:

<ul id="list_id">
<li id="li_23">Some Text <span class="delete">remove</span></li>
<li id="li_25">Some Text <span class="delete">remove</span></li>
<li id="li_24">Some Text <span class="delete">remove</span></li>
<li id="li_28">Some Text <span class="delete">remove</span></li>

And your script:

        var elm = evt.element();
        if (elm.hasClassName('delete'){
                var id = elm.up('li').id.split('_')[1];
                new Ajax.Request('handler.php',{
                        onSuccess: function(transport){

This decouples your HTML view from the database a little bit, but if  
you were to refresh the page after a successful delete, you would see  
the same thing anyway, so there's no real difference from a practical  
standpoint. The benefit comes when you are performing this operation  
on a thirty-screen-tall list of elements -- you no longer have to wait  
for the entire list to come back to the screen, or for the browser to  
re-paint it.
