Thanks for going ahead and applying it!

Since XHR has been baked into IE since 2006 or so, I reversed the feature detect to look for the standard XHR _first_, then detect the fallback second.

Yup, this was a bug in SHJS, thanks a lot for taking the time to fix it! Things should "just work" with the latest release, and hopefully I'll soon swap in a better syntax highlighter (SHJS was what seemed best at the time, but it's really crufty).
