Thanks for the explanation. I was using jQuery for an Ajax call (to a non-XML output PHP file), so I was curious about your basic implementation.

From my past experience, the ajax call should not really cause an excessive load. It would take a massive amount of returned data for that. I actually would be more worried about the browser's memory usage from loading a large XML file than I would about the server load.
