One data format that makes AJAX more effective is JSON.
Here's what it might look like:
Suppose we already have a function AJAX that uses the XMLHttp object to make an AJAX request to the specified page sending any data and then calling a callback function, passing it the server's response.
If the response text is encoded in JSON, we can simply make it into an object using the eval function:
Because it is so popular, many other programming languages have native functions to encode and decode JSON. PHP, for instance, has the json_encode and json_decode functions, which will return a string with the JSON equivalent of a passed object, and vice versa.
Be careful when applying the eval function to a string of unknown or untrusted origin. Hackers may try to inject malicious code into your page, and this is a massive security breach. I personally never use this function unless I wrote the script myself.

Charles Goodyear is a model of the determined inventor, who struggled to find the secret to a better rubber, despite years of financial hardship and frustration.
Nonno's explanations always did a round-robin circuit of science - history - philosophy, then back to science. Always back to science. As if it were that that drove the mechanism of time, and not the other way round. And philosophy? Well, that just went along for the ride.
