Description

18 years ago
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

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.
