Yes, I think that's a reasonable assumption (something, I'm ashamed to
say, my Ajax code doesn't do!).  Doesn't sound at all like an unreasonable
requirement either.

Not sure, but I'll check on that.  It definitely *sounds* right, and
again, probably isn't an unreasonable requirement in any case.  I was
actually thinking of a String property in the Action that defines what
type the request is, but your answer is I think definitely better.

Yes, agreed.  *That* I usually do at least :)
