[thelist] JavaScript/Ajax - responseText and IE question

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...
