The XMLHttpRequest open method gives a permission denied error when I call a page from a different domain. Is there any permanent solution to get around this error?

Javascript has a same-origin policy.  You'd have to set up a proxy script if you own both domains/sites.  If you don't own the other site, though, you cannot do this.

This is a security restriction imposed by the browser. The page you are trying to retrieve MUST be from the same domain as the page requesting/retrieving the remote page. However, this restriction does NOT exist on the server. What you need is to have our page send the request to some script on YOUR server and then have the server retrieve the remote page, and lastly, once the content is retrieved, pass it onto your page.

Does this help baboa?  We'd be glad to help more if not.  I can supply a proxy script if you need one, but as we both stated the same-origin security policy prevents cross domain XML-HTTP (ajax) requests.
