Hi Sunava -

It should be made clear that these methods work *only* with IE's  
'ActiveX' http object. The new built-in IE7 'native XMLHttpRequest'  
object has the following restrictions, according to the Microsoft  
website:

- Limited to GET, POST and HEAD HTTP verbs
- Limited to http:// or https:// protocols
- Limited to same port, host and domain

Cheers,

- Bill
