What's the diff between onData and onLoad?

> Nope, still getting 'undefined' in my full app. It reads in an external XML file with setup and quiz questions -- maybe there is something in there that's throwing a spanner in the works. I'll try reading that file in my stripped down version and see if it still runs into a problem.

> Latest update: I created a stripped down version that just takes the user's text entry email address and sends it to the PHP script, and reads the response from the onSendAndLoadVars event as rawData. It's working in my stripped down version on localhost. One difference: instead of trying to display the rawData (I haven't attempted any parsing yet) in the script attached to the event response, I'm exiting the response and then doing my textIconID.appendText(rawData) -- I'll let you know if moving my parsing routine to a script following the interaction resolves the problem in my full application.
