Are you asking about tag names greater than 64K, or content?
Please say content. :-)
Regardless, I don't believe Java has a String length restriction. I
just wrote a sample program that constructs a 1,000,000 character
string, and it worked fine. Now I seem to recall method bodies have a
64K restriction; maybe you're thinking of that.
