RE: Is there anyone working on a binary version of XML?

I did various experiments with this a while back. I tried a serialised SAX event stream, a simple canonicalisation and transcoding in which the special characters like "<" were replaced with octet values <x20, a Java serialisation of the DOM, etc. None gave a worthwhile saving over a stright reparsing of the original XML text stream, in fact most performed worse. So I gave up.
