    This is a JavaScript question.

    Why do you want to learn AJAX? It's a fad and many people have been overusing and/or abusing it.

    While I admire your curmudgeonly attitude, that statement may tilt towards disinformation. When such scholarly publications as Dr. Dobb's or JDJ are devoting as many or more column inches to Ajax as to Java or C++, one must realize that Ajax is more than a fad.

    Abbey,

    The heart of the Ajax phenomenon is the XMLHttpRequest object and its methods. It is, however, arguably the least consequential of the techniques that enable the Ajax "magic" (if it comforts you, Kravvitz, I'm wincing even as I write it). All the XHR object does is allow background communication with the server. All the visible effects of Ajax depend on Dynamic HTML, or DHTML. You may find that the more significant subject to address if you wish to emulate Ajax implementations you have seen.

    I know it's here to stay, but right now it's a fad, so it's getting way more interest than it deserves. Also Many people are implementing it badly so sites are dependent on JavaScript which is very bad for accessibility.

    Abbey, I suggest you look into using HIJAX, which is a good example of how AJAX should be done.

    Yes, but that can be said even of HTML. It doesn't really speak to much other than the fact that there are many self-anointed "developers" out there who couldn't do better than lose in a game of tic-tac-toe.

    *sigh* I know.

    Haven't you seen some of my posts where I tell people how they should fix their X/HTML?
