Open Office ODT format has the best document compression!

I was working on an SEO analysis that turned out to be 40.2 MB large. This is bad for my hard disk space and for me beacuse I wanted to upload it to my Google Docs so I could check it from my iPhone when out later today. I thought I would try saving it in different formats to see which one would bring the 40.2 MB size down the most. I tried .docx, .rtf and .odt.

ODT WON! What an impressive compression! It made the same file 360 KB and I easily managed to upload it to Google Docs (max size 500KB) and my problem was solved!
