JSF tags in Ajax response

I am using JSF MyFaces and Tomahawk.
I have a JSP page with 2 divs.
First div has an input text field and a button. On click of the button, an ajax call is made to a servlet using the value in the input text field.
This call will return a reponse text "<jsp:include page="inc.jsp"/>.
On onreadystatechange, I am populating the innerHtml of second div with this response text.
But it does not show up!
I have tried sending some simple JSF tags but no luck.
Is there anything obvious that I am missing here or it is just not possible to return JSF tags in the reponse?
I have response.setContentType("text/html");

Thanks for your responses.
I agree. Here's the link:
