    Xml loading


    Hi Guys,

    How would I spend up a live search box connected with an xml file.

    the file is 1.6m, if a letter is typed into the live search it just lags and either takes a minute or crashes.

    Would gzip compress the file and solve this?

    No. Because then it would have to decompress the file. And that means even more work.

    Use a database. And no, an XML file does not count.
