Both KOffice (part of the kde project: http://www.kde.org/) and gnumeric
(http://www.gnome.org) store thier files as XML (although I think both
transparently gzip the file - I know gnumeric does as I just tested it).

Here's a gnumeric file I just saved (had to rename it with a .gz suffix
and gunzip it):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
