Re: Can XSLT produce binary output: ASN.1-BER
> The BER is a binary format but so is PDF. Therefore it should be possible? > Has anyone done that already? you can not (using standard XSLT) output any characters thatare not allowed in XML, so in particular no characters below 32 except 9 10 and 13. xt had a non standard output method that allowed this. Otherwise you need to output in some xml representation of your ASN.1-BER, then do teh final character transforms needed using a string handling system such as perl or sed. The reference to PDF isn't really relevant as PDF is almost never written directly from XSLT (even if you stayed within pdf's ascii features, you would have a hard track of keeping the byte counts necessary for pdf tables) David _____________________________________________________________________ This message has been checked for all known viruses by Star Internet delivered through the MessageLabs Virus Scanning Service.
