Is there anyway for the browser to send a request to server but not to
receive an HTM in return ?

sent to the server, the client is forced to receive an HTM page in

Coming back to my question, "Can a browser send a request but not
anticipate an HTM page; OR not to display the response even if it
receives one. I heard of "remote scripting" but has no idea of how it

My Webserver is IIS4; browser - IE4; all running on NT4.
