Subject Re: Why is the _id called id in the response from a put request?

@Martin: Thanks, understanding it will hopefully help me remember.

@Goog:saveDoc() is a function included in jquery.couch.js.
You can use it whenever you reference jquery.couch.js.
To reference it I have this line in the header of the document:
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.couch.js"></script>
where you have to replace js/ with your own path to where
jquery.couch.js is in your project.
Hope I got your question right.

Alex
