Yes, certainly there are several options for handling binary data, as is pointed out in the article at http://www.xml.com/xml/pub/98/07/binary/binary.html namely: 1) maintain binary data in an external file and use notations/links to reference 2) maintain binary data inline in a base64 encoded element, to see an example send a MIME e-mail with a binary attachment, e.g. your ECG file, to test-xmtp@j... and it will send it back to you in XML encoded MIME format. 3) use a MIME multipart/related message to maintain an XML part (metadata) and a binary part (or parts) in a single document 4) convert the 'binary' ECG data into vector format and transmit as XML e.g. in SVG format. SVG is particularly well positioned to handle ECG data (as opposed to x-ray data). Jonathan Borden http://jabr.ne.mediaone.net xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
