yes sorry - in my mind i thought i had replied to you
thanks for the reminder

there are MANY places that anyones code can break down
especially when you say things like "home-grown" or "my own ____"

so always start your debugging process like this -
simplify simplify simplify

you should first jsut see if your ajax function works
by only having two files
one html with the basic inline jquery/js
and one php which contains the ajax calling function

then when you are sure thats wroking
then start building your project around the stuff
that you have just proven that works

Code works, just make sure you re-reference the javascript/jquery files in the example files to your directory. The reference to google reference is good, but you can import your own production file from jquery.com, if you want, but I'd leave it with the google external reference. It saves space, and I think it's better coding.

I found this out when I started really looking at the code to see what I was doing wrong. My first mistake was to try and figure out the functions, which I thought were in AJAX, and I did not understand them, so I thought the code was broken.

Code works fine, but please re-direct your references, and you'll be good to go. The code won't work out of the box like in most downloadable files. This AJAX thing is a tad more advanced. :)

Profr. Lei, I believe the Lesson1.php example you show has an error in the download.

I'm opening the file from the XAMPP localhost server, but the lower half does not behave like in your example. Need to check what's wrong with it, but for the moment please take note.
