Basically my friends AJAX news system for Thybag 5 works perfectly in firefox but screws up in IE. As i cant really be arsed to hunt aorund for hours looking for whats wrong, when chances are its stairing me obviosly in the face, im asking here to see anyone with a freash approach and figure out the problem quickly.

This is copied off my mate, not mine

The Javascript:

Code:
var target ;

function a_edit(id){
target = 'N_' + id;
try {xmlhttp = window.XMLHttpRequest?new XMLHttpRequest(): new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");}  catch (e) { // DontWork
}
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = b_edit;
xmlhttp.open("GET", '####&a=addform&id=' + id);
xmlhttp.send(null);

}
function b_edit(){
if ((xmlhttp.readyState == 4) && (xmlhttp.status == 200)) {
document.getElementById(target).innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText;
}
}
function c_edit(id){
// Get Data
var title = document.getElementById("N" + id + "_title").value;
var cat = document.getElementById("N" + id + "_Cat").value;
var update = document.getElementById("N" + id + "_time").checked;
var news = document.getElementById("N" + id + "_NewsItem").value;

xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = d_edit;
xmlhttp.open("POST", '####&a=save&id=' + id + '', true);
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
xmlhttp.send("title=" + title + "&cat=" + cat + "&update=" + update + "&news=" + news + "");

}
function d_edit(){
if ((xmlhttp.readyState == 4) && (xmlhttp.status == 200)) {

var rsp = xmlhttp.responseText;
// Spit Id and responce
var rsp2 = rsp.split('||--||');
var loc = 'N_' + rsp2[0];
//Write responce to ID
document.getElementById(loc).innerHTML = rsp2[1];


} 	
}
var adin = 0;
function n_Add(){

if(adin== 1) {
}
else {
// Load Ajax form for New news
try {xmlhttp = window.XMLHttpRequest?new XMLHttpRequest(): new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");}  catch (e) { // DontWork
}
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = n_Add2;
xmlhttp.open("GET", '####&a=New_addform');
xmlhttp.send(null);
}
}
var cur;
function n_Add2(){
if ((xmlhttp.readyState == 4) && (xmlhttp.status == 200)) {
cur = document.getElementById('addSpace').innerHTML
document.getElementById('addSpace').innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText + cur;
adin = 1;
}
}
function n_Add3(){
//
var title = document.getElementById("New_title").value;
var cat = document.getElementById("New_Cat").value;
var news = document.getElementById("New_NewsItem").value;

xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = n_Add4;
xmlhttp.open("POST", '####&a=addme', true);
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
xmlhttp.send("title=" + title + "&cat=" + cat + "&news=" + news + "");

}
function n_Add4(){
if ((xmlhttp.readyState == 4) && (xmlhttp.status == 200)) {

document.getElementById('addSpace').innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText + cur;
adin = 0;
}
}

function delete_N(id) {
   if (confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this News Item?')) {
// Ajax remove post
xmlhttp.open("GET", '####&a=del&id=' + id);
xmlhttp.send(null);
// Make gone
document.getElementById('N_' + id).innerHTML = "";
       }
       else {
// Cancil remove prot
alert ('Ok, no action has been taken');
   }
}
To be on the safe side I #### the URLS until I get around to checking them security wise

Any obvious problems which may make IE mess up that you point out will be greatly appreciated by me and my mate.
