Sunava -

My bad. I could've sworn there was a page that mentioned that the  
native object only supported GET, POST and HEAD. This would've been  
around August time frame. Did this get changed before the final  
release of IE7? I guess I'm just getting old :-).

Note that the Microsoft page describing the call does have the words  
'subset of HTTP verbs', but I guess from that its talking about the  
lack of support for CONNECT and TRACE.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Cheers,

- Bill
