There are many different XML representations of this, with different
trade-offs. If the number of bytes is your biggest constraint (and you don't
want to use compression), you could use

<r>value 1<c/>value 2<c/>value 3<c/>value 4</r>

which is almost as compact as comma-separated values, and easy to convert
(using SAX) to something more meaningful.
