I don't see any errors in the code you posted. If you are getting an error, please post it here. You can see the actual JS errors in FireFox by clicking on "Tools"->"JavaScript Council"

for the bigpoppa

AJAX stands for "Asynchronous JavaScript and XML" and by definition from domscripting.webstandards.org it means
A scripting technique for silently loading new data from the server. Although AJAX scripts commonly use the soon to be standardized XMLHttpRequest object, they could also use a hidden iframe or frame. An AJAX script is useless by itself. It also requires a DOM Scripting component to embed the received data in the document.
