function loadXMLDoc()
{var xmlhttp;
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)   //checks if browser supports XMLHttpRequest object
	{//code for IE9,IE8,IE7, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
		xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
	}
else
	{//code for IE6, IE5
		xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
	}
//when async=true, the function in onreadystatechange  event executes when the response is ready
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
  {
  if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)
  	  { xmlDoc=xmlhttp.responseXML;
	  	txt="";
		x=xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("ARTIST");
		//document.write("hello: "+x);
		for (i=0;i<x.length;i++)
			{   
				txt=txt + x[i].childNodes[0].nodeValue + "<br/>";
				
			}
	  	document.getElementById("myDiv").innerHTML=txt;
	  }
   }
xmlhttp.open("GET", "cd_catalog.xml",true);
xmlhttp.send();
}
