Displaying article detail outside the knowledge:articleList tag.

Every tip I have seen accesses article fields from within the knowledge:articleList tag, which is not very hard to do. I am trying to access an article outside the above tag. I am able pass the article Id using outputLink and param tags and can get the article to display in a new page/tab. However, what I need to do is display the article detail on the page with the link (using hidden div or jquery dialog).  It seems the only way to accomplish this is to have a commandLink submit the Id and use 'rerender' (?) to refresh the section of the page that displays the detail. Does anyone have experience in this area? I am just trying to do this the correct way.


Thanks in advance.




So that no one else attempts it, the parent element of commandLink must be a form, so the suggested implementation will not work.
