No, because it won't see it, as � (or any other representation of character 0) is not XML, so will be rejected by the XML parser (probably xerces) before xalan gets started. The only characters below 32 are 9 10 and 13. > t may be that I have to choose a different method for accomplishing this -- > for example, just using C++ to create the binary file from the xml > file. You need to invent an XML representation of the byte stream, and then use something otherthan xslt to convert thatrepresentation into a binary file. If your xslt engine supports that you could map that back into xslt as a non standard output type, so that the conversion was done automatically on output. (As I recall, xt had just such a non standard output type) David _____________________________________________________________________ This message has been checked for all known viruses by Star Internet delivered through the MessageLabs Virus Scanning Service.
