RE: problems with datasection

Title: RE: problems with datasection

Maybe I have misunderstood the complexity of the problem, but XML Schema Datatypes provides a datatype base64Binary, which I would have thought will do the trick:

<xsd:element name="interestingNonXmlData" type="xsd:base64Binary" />

Whether the processor will understand it is, of course, another issue.

A bit of a danger flag when they pop up on xsl-list... (Going back a two
or three years, I found that "Very interesting, but of course it won't
take off until it's got general browser support" was a classic
management "I don't get it" comment.)
