Thanks, Mark. I'll pass that on.

I've written some XML compression software called BOX that is available at My original goal was to write Axis handlers
would compress and decompress SOAP messages using it. This may make using
SOAP for large payloads practical. It would be nice if other compression
techniques could easily be plugged into these handlers in case BOX is not
the best choice. I haven't found time to work on that yet and would be glad
to hand this over.
