"an empty value - valid for hexBinary?"

Hi,

does the built-in primitive datatype "hexBinary" allow an empty value?

I noticed that Xerces-J 2.5.1 does not bark on an empty element of type 
"hexBinary" (<foo/>), but MS 4.0 does. I did not found an indication in 
the spec for the empty value to be valid, so I wonder if it's just a 
Xerces bug.

Regards,

Kasimier
