i'm hijacking some links code and making a "traffic cop" type page
where when you click one link it loads the contents of an external html page
into the div container on the current page using ajax.

The problem i have is this. I've spent the last few days writing a
script that parses an xml feed, this would be my blog.html page. I've
wrapped the js code that grabs xml feed into a div id="content" but
for some reason when i click that link from my traffic cop page, it
doesn't load the information into the div id container like its
supposed, i get nothing.

I've moved the code that reads the blog into an external js file
called blog.js.

I'm wondering what is the trick to making this work?
