Hi, I'd like to request a second loading implementation next to the excellent http GET loading functionality we've already got. Constructing a document from a String will allow to nest xml in xml. To explain, I can put xml documents in CDATA sections in a xml file, or in a dynamically loaded xml file, and use these CDATASections to construct new documents. Alternatively, the string data could also come from a Java applet. Third, the data could come from defined ECMAScript strings. This allows to pack small islands of data in the page script. I propose a overloaded "load(String src)" syntax if that is possible.

This feature will probably fall out of the work that Vidur is doing on his XML extras component. Watch out for more information on this soon in the XML newsgroup.
