Re: [xml-dev] How Many Documents in a Day?

Not all days are created equal :-)

In the UK, on January 31st 2009 for instance, approximately 500,000  
XML-based personal tax returns will be created and filed online with  
HMRC (and validated in near-real-time). Several million XML-based  
returns and other transactions are currently generated and filed or  
retrieved every year. By 2011 that will grow to several tens of  
millions, including around 6m separate corporation tax documents (4m  
of which will, by law, be XBRL), and around 8m VAT declarations.

But I suspect this is small beer compared to the myriad other ways  
there are of creating (XML) documents...

UML: The good thing about bubbles and arrows, as opposed to programs,  
is that they never crash.
