As for speed issues...
I've got a 100-record primary list with an average of about 5-6 sub-
list items coming out of Filemaker for a total of about 550 sub-list
items. The sub-list items come from a portal on the layout of the
primary list layout, so there's only a single find and PHP handles
Coming from FM Server 7 Advanced running on old, slow hardware (Dual
G4 533MHz, 512Mb RAM, stock [slow] HD, OS 10.4.11), the find and array
load overhead is about 4 seconds.
Of course if it were data from MySQL, the list would just *be there*,
no waiting, but... 4 seconds is tolerable for this task.
