Default problem fetching remote xml file

Hi all i am using the follwoing code to display a feed but when run i get the following error:access is denied

   xmlobj.open('GET',doc,true); ===>access is denied. error line 34

If i download the same xml file manually and place it in same folder as script then i do not get error. could any one tell me how to fix this problem and be able to use remote xml. I am looking for a solution that every visitior can use this script without having to change any thing.Thanks

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<script type="text/javascript">
// initialize XMLHttpRequest object
var xmlobj=null;
var data=new Array();
// send http request
function sendRequest(doc){
    // check for existing requests
        // instantiate object for Mozilla, Nestcape, etc.
        xmlobj=new XMLHttpRequest();
            // instantiate object for Internet Explorer
            xmlobj=new ActiveXObject('Microsoft.XMLHTTP');
            // Ajax is not supported by the browser
            return false;
    // assign state handler
    // open socket connection
    xmlobj.open('GET',doc,true); ===>access is denied. error 
    // send GET request
// check request status
function stateChecker(){
    // if request is completed
        // if status == 200 display text file
            // create data container
            // read XML data
 // display XML data
            alert('Failed to get response :'+ xmlobj.statusText);
// create data container
function createDataContainer(){
    var div=document.getElementById('container');
    var div=document.createElement('div');
// display data at a given time interval
function displayData(){
    // reset data container
    var ul=document.createElement('ul');
    for(var i=0;i<data.length;i++){
        // create links
        var li=document.createElement('li');
        var a=document.createElement('a');
        // assign 'href' attribute
        // add link labels
    // update headlines each 1 hour
// execute program when page is loaded
    // check if browser is DOM compatible
        // load XML file
<style type="text/css">
#container {
    background: #eee;
    padding: 5px;
    border: 1px solid #000;
li {
    margin-top: 5px;
a:link,a:visited {
    font: bold 11px Tahoma, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    color: #00f;
a:hover {
    color: #f00;
