[webkit-help] Webkit on Android

Hi all,

I am running Ajax on the native browser (which is based on the WebKit 
of Android 1.6 which is not too famous for dealing with the same-origin 
security policies.
The Ajax clients call remote web services from the phone and since the
scripts in them contain various URLs I get a preflighted request (with
OPTIONS). However, when the server returns the preflighted response
the browser does not do much beyond that (to serve the client that was
running on it). I cannot return these responses to the browser.

Any idea as to what the browser or the WebKit based browsers expect back
from such preflighted requests?

Thanks very much in advance
