Its actually going to be XML that gets compressed, but its not clear if its going to be CAB style, ala InfoPath, or something more universally usable. I'm of the expectation that compression will the default, but not the only option. > 3. How many of the reasons from moving from a binary file format to XML > also apply to binary XML in web messages? I don't think the overlap is as great as some might expect. The volume and user-expected velocity of network transmission should be considerably lower, and the compression is going to help with that. We're not dealing with object serialization so much either, more knowledge serialization. If XML itself is the ultimate format for remains unresolved, but it certainly answers the "why not just use CDFs" bluntly. Thanks! Kent Tegels DevelopMentor Blog: http://staff.develop.com/ktegels
