Ah, sorry. Probably not safe to assume everyone knows what you mean by "HTA". I've seen any number of acronyms people have created ad hoc to make their web apps sound cool, I have to assume I put your use of "HTA" in that category, not being familiar with that specific Microsoft-centric technology. > And I don't think the issue is due to "Same Origin Policy", as the > requests are working fine when server SSL is enabled using trusted > certificate. In that case, it's a question for Microsoft. Prototype isn't involved in the certificate chain process at all. It just does the request and reads the response via XMLHttpRequest. The certificate stuff is handled by the user agent (e.g., mshta.exe). -- T.J.
