Hi eric
I read your blog about AJAX.
One quesiton arised
When you do a post usign AJAX since it is asynchronous what happens to the web page which made the request?
DOes it hang , does the windows sign in IE rotate ???
I mean how does the user come to know that some activity is going on.
this is when for example after posting the request and the server while processing it crashes.
What will happen at the browser?
And how do you handle this??

Life called,so here I am.<br />Cheers<br />Niki.:-)
