   RE: [xml-dev] Some comments on the 1.1 draft

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The normalization of CR, LF and CRLF can be avoided by using their
character entities. So I still can preserve fidelity.

hexBinary and base64Binary does not scale to the user (mostly text data
with a few low ASCII characters intermingled, so people want to be able
to read the data) and high-performance scenarios (no time to
encode/decode into binary) needed in the database and SOAP scenarios.

Best regards
