comment Are there valid cases in HTML/XML where tags would not be fully contained?
Oh, I knew that the text I wrote up there wouldn't actually be rendered that way in HTML. It was just supposed to be a simple example of the concept, in case my terminology was wrong. I was wondering if there exist any cases of such structuring being valid, but it sounds like you are saying there most definitely are not due to the underlying tree structure of the DOM.

2. Would using a memcached store be much advantageous over just using a host cache (like Session or Cache in IIS+ASPNET)? They're both going to be stored in RAM right?

1. I agree that offloading to a secondary data store could work well, and would simplify maintenance on the primary database.

If memory capacity is a primary concern, maybe use compression to store the in-memory data? This would require a de/re-compression of the data on each page request, but gzip is already used for webpage compression so overhead should be managable. Even if not, a 2 or 3 page uncompressed buffer should offer an acceptable tradeoff. With compression, it should be no problem to store the data in memory for the duration of the user session or until they explicitly confirm/cancel it.

comment PowerShell idiom to test for existence of a command?
I think that saying the idiomatic way to do things in PowerShell is the "posh way" is just too good. Definitely using that!
