Storing binaries in XML streams


Are there any guidelines for storing graphics, wp documents atc within an
XML document?
We are putting together a methodology of converting
Word/AmiPro/Wordperfect/DCA-RFT/Notes documents to XML. We have a DTD and
Schema, and understand how to embed these within the document, but we're not
clear whether there are rules for embedding graphics and attachments etc
within the same stream.
[Shows ignorence] If it can be done, how should it be done, and is this
desirable, or are we better off staying with external references?

Any opinions and guidance is welcome.
