Due to the growing popularity of XML as a data exchange and storage format, the need to save, query, and manipulate XML documents has emerged. However the verbosity of XML causes doubts about its efficiency as a data format in exchanging data. Compression of XML documents for efficient storage and management is thus needed. The goal of our research is to develop a compact XML storage that allows efficient querying as well as updating.
