I think your second method (serializing your internal representation,
whatever that is, into text [that's what XML is, right?!]) is the most 

The other end will just strip off the HTTP headers, and parse the XML 
back. You will just be sending plain old (ok, unicode) text over HTTP.
Why do you think this won't work in non-Microsoft environments?
