Another option if you want to tunnel what is essentially uninterpreted
binary data through XML is to Base64 encode it, that way even NUL bytes
It's not binary. It's 7-bit ASCII. And base64 blobs does not preserve
What a shame that this trivial-to-fix mistake in XML 1.0 "not full
UNICODE including ASCII" may not be fixed anyway.
How does structure come into it?
I don't see how
preserves _structure_ better than
<attr encoding="base64">[base64 version of ]</attr>
just uuencode64 the attribute content if you want to pass binary blobs there,
no need to change the structure.
