No kidding. Just think of all the space used to store formatting data. I just typed the expression "Blah." (minus quotes) in a .doc file, it's 19,456 bytes in size to store 5 bytes of information.

I'm not saying that formatting data is entirely without worth, but there's definitely some improvements to be had WRT efficiency.
