It depends on what you're trying to do with the page.

Personally I've been making some complex Web apps lately, as such payloads can be massive in some cases (think pushing data for 1000+ different cars) so I chose initial complexity of javascript handlers with very lightweight json moving the actual data around with ajax. Much quicker responses, less browser overhead and can be made more user friendly when it times out (not if, they always want it bigger then moan when the local BB can't keep up). Yes, it's initially big but once there the js is cached and every one is happy (apart from those who hate the last 15 years of browser development and still think ie 6 was a fine browser)
