Great :)  Thanks for the tip :)  
I learnt about your book from the conversations on the list.  I just ordered
it this morning, and looking forward to see it tomorrow PM.  Page 608 will
definitely be the first page I read. :)

Yeah, I won't have an overwhelming number of records to deal with.  
Besides reduce roundtrips to the server, I want to keep the presentation
layer flexible.  With maxLinesPerPage kept in XSLT, page layout can be
controlled without have to modify the XML generation code.

If you've been following other threads you'll have seen the advice that
you're getting the data from the database it's best to generate one XML
document for each displayed page of data.

However, at the level of 1000 records, handling a single document is
feasible and despite what others have said, if you're doing the
in the client I think it's quite a reasonable option, because it reduces
number of hits on the server. You'll find an example using this sort of
architecture on page 608 of my book*: it's not doing paging in the way
describe, but a similar kind of interactive navigation within a dataset.
