   [xml-dev] images and urls in xml

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

XML is oblivious to the HTML style hrefs.  And binary data cannot be used
inside XML.  So, I recommend the following:

1.  Base64 encode the image data (there are many samples online on how to do
this) 2.  Create an element similar to the following:

<Image Encoding="base64" OriginalFilename="original image filename goes
here"> Base64 encoded image data goes here </Image>
