well - a solution would fully depend on how you would fetch the data - either with 1 or with 2 requests.

if you would use 2 seperate requests then you could simply transfer the example you have to your problem - just make 2 requests and process the results in the callback function (in that example myFunction) - and make sure that your result elements have different ids that you would use for inserting the processed data.

if you want to do only 1 request - then the response would have to be parsed differently depending on how the response would look like (since in that case you would have to have both documents in the response somehow - may be combined into 1 'envelope'-document or combined into json-response as values for keys like doc1 and doc2 or however the response would be built in that case) - but again - parse it as needed and append the results to 2 different parts of the page by using different ids for the 'base-elements' of the content you wish to show.

you could use different attributes like class or even custom attributes of the elements instead of the ids - but ids are the 'easiest' to work with, since getElementById directly returns you a reference to a node with that id (given the node exists).
