Web Browser :- IE 4.01
XSL Processor :- MSXSL ActiveX Control

        Is there a restriction on the size of the XML file I give as input
to the MSXSL ActiveX control?
        I am using the MSXSL ActiveX control to display a XML file using the
following :-
                            codebase="" width="100" height="100">
(***)  <PARAM NAME="documentURL" VALUE="Test.xml">
  <PARAM NAME="styleURL" VALUE="Test.xsl">


    Now when I give the documentURL property of the MSXSL (see *** above) an
XML file (say test.xml) which contains a large amount of data (say about
100-150 instances each element) , MSXSL does not render the XML file

    Infact IE 4.01 hangs!


1) Is there a limitation on the amount of XML elements that can be present
in a XML file given as input to the MSXSL processor?

2) If so what is it?

3) If there exists a length limitation then ,how to send XML files
containing large amounts of data to MSXSL ActiveX control?

                    Any help would be appreciated,
                    Thanks in advance,
