Actually, Flash is the best solution I know of to get your information
to a visitor with the least bandwidth.

A great example is <http://www.phpforflash.com/board/>.

Perhaps loading .txt files into a sibling frame (or iframe, if that
would work) would win by a smidgeon if you didn't have much info to
convey and were utterly unconcerned with all the business you'd loose
from the hordes of Lynx users!
