RE: Images embedded in XML

I think so, yes.  One also might inquire what the 
impact of the blob in the XML is on the use 
of resources by the DOM.  IOW, for example, 
what does MSXML do with a large chunk of 
base64 encoded information inside an element 
and how does that affect say the memory footprint, 
or is that a concern?

The picture in my mind is of the old joke of 
how one knows an elephant has been in the 
refrigerator:  footprints in the peanut butter. :-)

I think, keeping binary data separate from XML text (if you can) would be a
better choice - one reason being binary to base64 encoding most of time may
increase the final data size.
