	Sorry, but with Win98 rumored to demand 64MB of RAM just to run
and with
	Moore's Law applying to memory prices, I can't muster much
enthusiasm for
	an argument that it is too costly to shave bytes on markup. If
you had to

Work for a while in a system that has 1/2 MB ROM, 
maybe 1MB RAM, and a CPU that is managing 
intense calculations and I/O.

Am I alone?  Or are there others out there with similar
constraints who want to use XML?  I'd like to hear from
