With tall inheritance hierarchies in my samples, my generated XML documents grow very large and very repetitive. This is exactly what compression algorithms such as LZW are designed to eliminate. I have found compressions as high as 700%. This does not mean that the resulting compressed documents are small but it does help make practical the transfer of data in XML. Note: The size of the document is influenced by my choice of element over XML attribute encoding for simple types. This was done for symmetry. bob -- <!-- Bob Steele, TDI Inc. 5000 Old Ironsides Drive Santa Clara, CA 95054, USA bsteele@t... http://www.tdiinc.com Tel: 1-408-330-3404 , or toll free 1-888-544-5511 Fax: 1-408-330-3444 --> xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
