I'm not a violent person, honestly, but wait till I get my hands on the browser's developer tools. You nasty HTML nodes are going down rough. ☠️

You need to store the same data in XML and Json for different cache layers? Fine, no problem, behind closed doors you do you, but we do NOT talk about it in front of the Login-Pages, we are a RESPECTABLE module thankyou very much.
