I thought I read some where in the internet where you can do B but it
required encoding schemas. I have to do the search again for this,
but I properly misunderstood thinking this was all said and done.
The main point I realize now and surprise to see is that the client
world has not standardized on it yet. Just coming into XML/SOAP now,
one would think this is all resolved by now. :-)
