OK so not a JavaScript question but don't know where else to ask and judging
from some of the knowledge I have seen here in the past I reckon someone
here might just have some idea.

When the Web Service URL is called from IE it just returns the wdsl and does
not actually run the Web service.  Is there a way of creating a dummy Web
page which would actually run the Web service?

Theoretically calling a Web Service is just an HTTP request so I am trying
to call a Web Service from IE.  I know they are not exactly designed to be
called from Internet Explorer but I would like to do this so that I can
speed/load test our Web Service using the Microsoft 'WAS' stress testing
tool.

Thanks,
