More and more JSON is becoming the data interchange format of the web and even starts to leak outside of this world, replacing XML wherever it can, and there is really good reasons for that. But often people are driven towards JSON for other reasons, not necessarily bad reasons, but based on more anecdotal facts, like the so-called verbosity of XML. Indeed this is the argument you’ll hear the most often, e.g. just have a look at this nice comparison of the two formats: the first cons is of course “verbosity“.

Since HTML is in fact XML (an instance of), would it be possible to JSONize html pages? If the gain is, say 30%, then it is an interesting solution for mobile transmissions.

Interesting numbers. But that's not verbosity, just size.
