Is XML datatype exempt from 8,060 bytes-per-row limit?

Well?  Is it?

The maximum size of an XML-type field is 2 to the 31st power.  I'm not a math major, but I think that's quite a bit bigger than 8,060.  Can I trust that XML fields are automatically stored differently, similar to varchar(MAX)?  (Thanks, MikeWalsh!)

Thanks again,

XML is a single field. so, for the row, only few bytes (12) are stored in the row for the pointer, the actual data is stored apart.
similary to varchar(max), you can store up to 2GB of data in such a single field.
