I see that jQuery has support for PUT in the $.ajax method
The type of request to make ("POST" or "GET"), default is "GET". Note: Other HTTP request methods, such as PUT and DELETE, can also be used here, but they are not supported by all browsers.
However, I'm worried about the mention of browser compatibility. Does anyone know exactly what browsers do not support the PUT type for this $.ajax function? Its important that it work in IE6-9.
