XML News from Wednesday, April 8, 2009

The W3C EXI working group has posted a new working draft of Efficient XML Interchange Evaluation. They report some impressive numbers. However it's not immediately apparent to what extent the most impressive ones cheat by hiding some of the information in the schema, rather than producing self-contained documents as one finds in actual XML. They also appear to be throwing away information in some cases. This doesn't seem to always be a lossless compression.
