For those that want speed, you can zip XML and they get really compact. This is what Microsoft's .docx format does. The W3C is also working on a compression scheme that is specific to XML that will probably do even better than zip compression. What is cool about it is that all XML-based file formats will take advantage of it. All XML tools will be updated to deal with the compression/decompression and will work on all those formats.
