Hi Shashi,

The normal approach is to base64 encode binary data 
(http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3548.html) (or hex encode).  This does result 
in some data expansion though.  Every 3 bytes will be turned into 4.  I 
don't know of any other solution that would work with a standard XML parser, 
although some multiple file / out of band technique may work.

Pete.
