View Full Version : Storing data in XML files. Size limitations?

09 Nov 2005, 10:30 AM
I've just started using XML files for storing basic data. All examples I've ever seen of XML data tend to store small amounts of data in each element (each pair of tags). Can XML elements hold larger amounts of data?

For example, if I'm using an XML file to store product info in a catalog, could it handle a 100 word description of the product in one element?

If so, can this include formatting such as line breaks or new paragraphs or would I need to set new child elements for these, e.g. <desc_para1>, <desc_para2>, etc.

Any help greatly appreciated.
