perl binary output

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)
