jQuery In Action:
Re: Chapter 8
I could not get the POST var syntax to work for the script calling the data file with the .load() method.

You can use a php page for the data file, in place of the getDetails.jsp.
The code for my version of getDetails.php is :

remember to use echo - not return!

The calling page, boot.closet.1.html, needs a mod in the javascript:

This call, using GET var syntax in the 7th line works:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

This call, using POST var syntax, does NOT work.
(Maybe someone can enlighten me.)

The web page for the .load() method at jQuery.com has a glitch. I need another good lead on where I have gone wrong with the POST var syntax. Anyone have an idea?
