Dear XMLPers,

I took an action on last weeks call to take a look at the proposed
edited recommendation of XML Schema Part 2[1] WRT the base64Binary
type[2]. 

The description of the base64Binary type now contains a BNF and a
canonical lexical form. The canonical lexical form contains no
whitespace characters within the stream of base64 characters. Whitespace
characters at the beginning and/or end of the stream of base64
characters are stripped due to the whitespace facet of the type having a
value of collapse. Thus any canonical lexical form of base64Binary is
one line of base64 characters.

I believe that the addition of a canonical lexical form satisfies our
requirements WRT XOP/MTOM.

Regards

Gudge
