RE: Parameters query
Thanks for reply. Am interested in passing in xml - just didn't know if any limits or what you could pass and couldn't find much on it from the standard.

No quoting necessary. Some processors allow you to pass other things than strings, for example DOM trees. This is, however, highly processor specific. If you mean by "certain types of text" XML, well, it is just treated as text and not parsed. Therefore, again, no quoting necessary.
