Help with Larger XML File


I have to parse an XML file using HTML and the DOM. This is the only technology I can use.

Everything is working fine, but the XML has 8000+ records and it takes a while to load. The XML file is 1.8mb but will continue to grow.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me to make the user experience better?


Pre-process the XML somehow to make it smaller or choose a different parsing structure.

Thanks Buddy … But I am not sure what you mean.

By pre-process do you mean server side?

As for Parsing Structure, I have tried both the standard DOM way and the jQuery way … is there something better?
