What context are you talking about XML string limits? Laszlo currently
proxies XML data by encoding the XML as a Flash byte-coded instruction
stream, but we're moving to use the newer Flash client-side XML parsing,
because it is now fast enough. For DHTML, we use the XMLHTTPRequest API, so
the XML is sent as text, but it can be gzipped by the server , which is a
better idea all around than a separate binary encoding for XML.
