AJAX support is really only required in the BROWSER, via the XMLHttpRequest 
object.  This issues an HTTP request to the server, but returns the response as 
an object to the JavaScript, instead of trying to render it.

The server just reacts as usual, generally (though not necessarily) emitting XML 
content to simple requests.
