var req = init();
req.onreadystatechange = processRequest;

function init() {
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
return new XMLHttpRequest();
} else if (window.ActiveXObject) {
return new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");

function processRequest () {

if (req.readyState == 4) {
if (req.status == 200) {
if (callback) callback(list,req.responseXML,selected, enrichment);

this.doGet = function() {"GET", url, true);

this.doSynchronousGet = function() {"GET", url, false);

this.doPost = function(body) {"POST", url, true);
req.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
