If you mean capital R - didn't work. Turns out I overstated the problem. This is the deal: when response.responseText comes back, I can alert it as a valid string, even in IE. But when I go to apply that as innerHTML - that is when I get the error - so this is failing: response = request.ResponseText; <-- this is okay m = document.getElementById('msg'); m.innerHTML = response; <-- this errors out!?!?! For some reason IE does not like the string of text? I tried toString() with no luck... --- Peter Brunone <peter at easylistbox.com> wrote: > I had that problem with ELB a while back. > > Try request.ResponseText for IE. > > And yes, I'm serious. http://www.pixelmech.com/ http://www.crossandthrone.com/ Professor Rumford: 'But I still don't understand about hyperspace.'
