Default what's wrong with my code?

OK, so I was playing around with the Try it out on pg 85, and changed the function MakeXMLHTTPCall() to include a try/catch block:

<script type="text/javascript">
            function MakeXMLHTTPCall()
                    var xmlHttpObj = CreateXmlHttpRequestObject()
                        xmlHttpObj.open("GET", "http://" + location.host + "/Javascript Playground/DataFile.xml", true);
                        xmlHttpObj.onreadystatechange = function()
                           if(xmlHttpObj.status == HTTPSTATUS_OK)
                                alert("URL exist!");
                            if(xmlHttpObj.readyState == READYSTATE_COMPLETE)
                                // Extract the response text here and place in the div element.
                        var err_msg = "Could not locate url!\n\n";
                        err_msg += "Error code: " + err_msg.description;


While it "sort of works" I am not getting the desired result, in firefox it loop through my

if(xmlHttpObj.status == HTTPSTATUS_OK)
    alert("URL exist!");

portion of the code with the alert showing up three times, then it loads the the data. In internet explorer It as me if I wish to debug the code. The debugger breaks on the same section of code, which indicates that the value of xmlHttpObj.status is equal to "". Which I don't quite understand. In the end if I just ignore the error in IE, it does eventually load the xml file????
