Ah, sorry -- I didn't realize the reply-to didn't go to the whole list.

Aha! I was thinking this wouldn't work because I couldn't pass the
parameters (httpGetText() just takes a URL, whereas httpPostText() takes
a URL, a string of parameters, and a contentType), but I tried
concatenating the parameters to the URL *and it WORKED*. 

var url = "http://qa-dev.w3.org/wmvs/HEAD/check";
var docContents = "http://www.avocado8.com/index.shtml";
var result = httpGetText(url + "?uri=" + docContents +

I think this explains why it worked perfectly if I just pasted the whole
URL + parameters string into the browser's address bar (because it would
just do a GET in that case).

Thank you SO much for your help! This is awesome. :)
