Re: CDATA Section [binary data in...]
Remember the XML 1.0 definition: CDATA sections are "used to escape blocks of text containing characters which would otherwise be recognized as markup". Nothing about this implies including XML-illegal characters. Re Tim Bray's "CDATA Sections and Binary Data" note: http://www.xml.com/axml/notes/CDprob.html I've never read this to state that you can put _raw_ binary data in a CDATA section. The phrase "When you look at CDATA, you might get the impression that you could maybe jam your binary data in a CDATA section. You'd be right, but..." may be a little misleading, but do remember that these are just explanatory notes that can never be taken to contradict the XML 1.0 spec itself! Yes, base64 is a good method of cramming binary data into a CDATA section, just be certain that a "]]" can't appear in the encoded data.
