XMLMax Performance Tests

The tables below give the time it took to fully parse each listed XML file and load it into XMLMax's treeview. XMLMax uses Microsoft's XmlReader to parse XML. Times are also given for opening each file with the VIM (vim.org) and Notepadd++ (notepad-plus-plus.org) text editors and navigating to the end of the file. Note that text editors do not check for XML syntax errors.
