One thing that has always worked for me (as far as I could tell) is using a very simple AJAX object where I send the request to the server-side script, then have the script do all the processing, then spit out the HTML. I call it include. It didnt do any JSON or XML output, just HTML.

It takes 2 parameters, the server-side script URI, and the output object. As far as I could see, it worked in all the browsers as intended, even IE6. Also wrote a handful of other functions that would take care of any extra document processing after include() was finished. They would work in a find/replace, or just edit some <divs>. Either way it worked quite well.

I need to look into that, I have a developer friend that swears by it and I've always heard good things. Anything that makes cross browser design/layout easier is a plus in my book!
