XmlHttp with mozilla?

anyone have a code example of using xmlhttp with mozilla, if i use the
following code, the function is never called, but it does work in IE.

xmlhttp.onready statechange = function()

if (xmlhttp.readyS tate == 4)
var response = xmlhttp.respons eText;
divResponse.inn erHTML += "<p>" + response + "</p>";

I'm not totally sure about this but all the code that I've read has an
extra '&& xmlhttp.status= =200' in the conditional. Now that shouldn't
change anything though; it should still work. All code that I've
written like this has worked fine in firefox and looks quite similar.
Check the javascript console for errors. The only thing that I can
think of is that the error is elsewhere. Perhaps when xmlhttp was
created (different than IE). Adding some more code here would also
help. Good luck.

I don't see anything wrong with that code snippet therefore I think the
problem is elsewhere. Make sure that you do
xmlhttp.send(nu ll)
if you don't want to send anything in the request body, with IE you can do
but Mozilla wants the null argument.

I determined that the problem was because i was calling xmhttp.Send(),
with a capital "S". For some reason this works in IE, but not in
firefox. send() with a lower case "s" is proper.
