I would be nice to use XML data as an alternative to cookie strings. Currently IE5 allows exactly this by the "userData Behavior". The limits are 64 per page / 640k per domain. Such a feature would complement (my ideal) system for using XML data in cross-browser HTML UI's. 1) XML loading (15119) 2) XML request object (save & load by POSTing) 3) client side persistance & cache for speed URL (IE5 userData behaviour): http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/Author/behaviors/reference/behaviors/userData.asp
Changing to xml component and reassigning.
RFE; confirming. Gerv
Accepting bug and setting target milestone to M18...
I suggest that a script in a page should be able to persist XML Documents using a key. Pseudocode: -------------------- // oDoc = W3C DOM Document object mozDataStore.persistXML("mydata",oDoc); -------------------- // loading: var oDoc = mozDataStore.loadXML("mydata"); if(oDoc!=null) alert("XML Document succesfully loaded"); --------------------
I would also like to suggest similar maximum size limits for the "XML store" as IE5 has at the moment: 64KB max per page, 640KB max per domain/site.
(Apologies for the spam , this is the last comment I forgot) The mechanism should have the same security limits as "normal" cookies.
