18.3.5 Handling the Response with a Callback Function
The function that will check for the status of a request and handle the information
returned from the server is called a callback function or an inline function. The object's
onreadystatechange event handler is assigned a reference to the callback function.
The data sent back from a server can be retrieved with two other properties of the
XMLHttpRequest object called the responseText property and the responseXML property.
The responseText Property. For simple Ajax applications, such as getting text from
a file, you can retrieve the server's response in a string with the responseText property.
