Elements or Attributes

I have the following XML doc:

<height> 480 </height>
<width>  640 </width>

Another way of creating the same document would be:
 <screen height="480" width="640"> </screen>

Is there any difference in the two approaches in terms of
1. Memory Consumption
2. Speed of Building the DOM
3. Speed of recursively searching the DOM say for value of "width".

How can I determine which approach is appropriate for my application.
Can anyone help me in choosing between the two. 
I am using XML4C2_3_1 on HP-UX and Win NT.
