My only reason doing this because I could use XSL as my templating engine; achieve the separation of content, design, and code. But in order to use XSL I need to use XML. XML needs to big if I want to use the data from the huge MySQL database.

this so that I can use XSL instead of Smarty?

I'm not really sure what you want to achieve here, as all of those languages do quite different things! And I wouldn't ever recommend having a single XML file with petabytes of data, that's just asking for trouble!

I may be off the mark, but if you want to style data then use css. It doesn't require your data to be in XML format.
