Most obviously: (OK. I do know that there is a timed reload instruction 
in HTML, that I malevolently ignore in this post, but it would be a PITA 
to use same in a more complex example, as it would reload everything 
instead of updating e.g. just a single number, as often needed in a RIA 
GUI.)

You keep the Browser Window open and at midnight the sheet for the new 
day should automatically be displayed.

HTTP/HTML can't do that, It's strictly unidirectional request->answer. 
(Which in fact is completely silly, but we need to live with that).

So Java script can do the necessary polling.
