How to return a partial view from WebWork action or command?

I have some parts of my plugin which are loaded through AJAX on demand. Now there is a problem that although my velocity template for that command does not contain html head nor body tags, still JIRA inserts them automatically when I request it from http://localhost:2990/jira/secure/MyAction!myCommand.jspa?_=1386174672969.

How do I return only HTML structure from my own .vm view and stop JIRA from injecting its headers and body?

Thanks you brought me on the right way, I think

<meta name="decorator" content="none">

i what you are looking for.

After some inspection on default JIRA pages as workaround I did it like this:

        <!-- the following must be present to keep the partial view only. 
            at first I tried atl.popup as suggested in the docs, but it did not work -->
        <meta name="decorator" content="dialog">


The response is now clear from head tags and whatnot, but there are some other lines added:

<div class="jira-dialog-content">
        <div class="dialog-title hidden"></div>

which is not a big deal - I can filter them client side with some jQuery.

Still, I'm not sure that's the "official" way to achieve the desired behavior...
