  • 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.
