Hello.

Thank you very much for your detailed replay.
You did clear my point - its the first option you wrote:
HTML page from server1 to client and this HTML page makes XMLHTTPRequest to
server2.

As far as I know the HTML page can only "connect" to its origin server which
is server1.
So, how can it be done?

Thank you.
