Hi Pete,
 
Thanks for the response. Is it possible to compress the data after it has been encoded.
 
Thanks,
Shashi

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.
