Sleepyhead has posted a quick note about the XMLHttpRequest support in Internet Explorer 7, some bad news – it’s case-sensitive.
The native XMLHttpRequest object in IE7 is case-sensitive. This is no big surprise – however that was not the case with the XMLHttpRequest active-x object in earlier versions of IE. So if you have old code that used uppercase in method/functions that worked with IE6 you have to change it for it to work in IE7. Took me a while to figure out why an old script of mine wasn’t working…
He gives the code example for his fix, noting that “Status” will no longer be the same as “status”.
