  • You have something against the Property List editor [macaddict.com]? :-)

    --Nat

    • I don't need it, first of all. I also use command-line utilties for dealing with NetInfo.

      However, it would be harder in this case, IMO, to use it. This is the particular data:

  • I wonder why they base-64 encoded it, instead of just &-escaping it. You know, � to &255;. Not very compact, but then if they wanted compact, they wouldn't be using XML.

    Maybe they just wanted to be able to have free whitespace, which I presume you can have in Base-64 but not if you're relying on &-encoding.
