Ajax does not work in html help (chm) files

Easy problem.

Function httpSuccess checks if request is successfull. There is special branch for local "file://" requests. BUT, same behaviour used in IE chm files (*.chm) in "mk:" protocol.

You should replace

return !xhr.status && location.protocol == "file:" <...>


return !xhr.status && (location.protocol == "file:" || location.protocol == "mk:")

to make all help-writers happy ;)

jQuery makes no claims to support .chm files. We'll push this through as a potential enhancement, but there are plenty of protocols that we don't support, because they just aren't common... The library is intended to be the best set of _common_ options for developing. Feel free to use AOP or a modified version in your .chm files.

What other protocols would we potentially need to support if we took this on?
