problems with ajax accents on ie

i have set up a xhr , all the accents on the page are showed ok on ff an safari
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function _cms() {
  2. cms.open("GET", 'cms.php', true);
  3. cms.setRequestHeader('If-Modified-Since','Wed, 05 Apr 2006 00:00:00 GMT');
  4. if (cms.overrideMimeType) {
  5. cms.overrideMimeType('text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1')
  6.          }
  7. else{cms.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"); }
  8. cms.onreadystatechange = function() {
  9. if(cms.readyState == 1){loader();}
  10. if(cms.readyState == 4 && cms.status == 200){
  11. document.getElementById("body_").innerHTML = cms.responseText;
so i setup a if condition for the overrideMimeType method because ie dont recognize it and blocks the xhr then i set a else with a setRequestHeader thinking this one would handle the no showing accents on ie (french accents) but it still does not work on ie, any thoughts? regards.

Set the header in the PHP file.

the called file has the php extension but it's a normal html file so i cant do that

Try using meta tags to set the content type. Have you tried to load the page directly without Ajax?

if the page is loaded without ajax the accents are ok, i am calling this page with the AHAH method(response text) so i cannot include a metatag in the called file(only in the calling file wich is the file that calls all the files),it is strange as the overridemymetype method works for ff and safari but i cannot find a else statement to make it work for ie

Can you show me the error details?
And what 's exactly happening please tell me :)
I feared you didn't obtain XML HTTP Request for IE. Show me the code for obtaining XML HTTP Request.
