when i try in my taxonomy script the following in Google Chrome:


       operation: "GetChildTermsInTerm",
       sspId: sspId,
       termId: roottermId,
       termSetId: termSetId,
       lcid: 1033,
         function (xData, Status)


It works perfectly. Doing the same in IE 9 i always get the following error:

Object doesn't support property or method 'SPServices'

I'm using SPServices Version 0.6.2 and jquery 1.6.4. over CDN

Any suggestions for IE ?

kind regards

The problem was a false script type I used
<script type="application/javascript" src="/_layouts/SPServiceTrial/jquery.SPServices-0.6.2.js" language="javascript"></script>

instead of
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/SPServiceTrial/jquery.SPServices-0.6.2.js" language="javascript"></script>

Sorry I didn't get back to you on this, but I'm glad you solved it.

Nice blog post, too. You should consider using jQuery to parse the XML for better cross-browser support, as they do that work for you.
