Re: Binary XML Progress

Sefan -

If the biggest performance difference happens at the low end of the document
size scale, it may not be that useful for http document transport.  Any
documents that would benifit would probably fit into a single TCP segment
making the added compression for small docs not as important.

As an aside, almost all dictionary-based compression scheme perform poorly
on small files.  It just takes time for them to build up any useful
information in thier dictionary.  It is possible to preload dictionaries,
something I've done for the compression of database pages in a static
database intended for CD-ROM.

Do you have any furthur information that you could provide on your method.
I would certainly like to see what you have in mind and potentially give
