Easy and simplicity of transformation, sharing and storing files among programs, platforms and machines. From these formats are XML formats and plain and flat TXT file formats. Complex formats of the files will cause difficulty in treating with, for instance files transformation while the simple files could treat with them with insurance of no need for compatibility requirements and no virus effect. The method of this research are content size and comparison between XML file format and TXT flat file. The XML file formats are very simple to treat in structure in such as transforming and in converting among various applications. This study got that XMl files are structured programmed content and took some Kilobytes size, such as XML Spreadsheets formats which are taken for a text and a picture content just 3KB, whilst in XML PowerPoint Presentation took 97KB. TXT plain txt file is simpler than XML file which are both text based content because that, the same content after converting to TXT format took just 1KB. The plain text file format is fairly not organized and unstructured text-based content except the head section TXT file.
