Is it possible to include binary data in a XML document and follow the
<![CDATA[ ascii data ]]>
allows the inclusion of arbitrary ascii data except I do not think
uuencode or other binary -> ascii/UTF8
encoders will work without modification to eliminate the ]]> encoding.
Would this be possible.
<![BDATA length=1024[ binary data ]]> where the parser would ignore
1024 bytes and expect
to see a ]]> at the end.
The spec seems to imply only character data but does not disallow
I assume a character encoding that did not use the ]]> sequence is okay.
I think the <![BDATA length=x[ ]]> tag is not.
You need let the the parser ignore and redirect x number of bytes from
the token stream. This would be equivalent to a "Java production" in
But I'm not sure if it is legal ???
So do I need to alter uuencode or some other encoding format to fit the
or is it legal to include a binary section. And if not why not : )
