That 30 to 40 percent only applies to the text of any document, if
we're talking bandwidth. Does anyone know what the percentage is of
text to non-text stuff being sent across the Net? Pictures seem to
use up more than 10,000 words, for instance.
Obviously less text means less typing, which is good if there's no
other losses associated - such as readability.
