Note to self, re: using jQuery for AJAX


Note to self: if you do things like $('#home').load('xml/homepage.xml', function() { ... , you might think everything is working fine, because it will be ok in Firefox, but then Allen and Tracy will say “Hey, you, look at the page in Internet Explorer and Safari. It is broken.”

So apparently what you have to do is more like

type: "GET",
url: "xml/homepage.xml",
dataType: "xml",
success: function(xml) {

and then, everyone is happy!
