Hi all

A possibly related question: I noticed that the XML-RPC "spec" says that
_arbitrary_ binary content should be encodable in strings. But the way I
read the XML recommendation, there are certain characters (<32 ASCII,
excluding whitespace) that cannot exist in an XML document, not even in
escaped format. This seems too obvious a problem, so I must be missing
something - could someone enlighten me?

This is from REC-xml-20001006:

Character Reference
[66]   CharRef ::= '&#' [0-9]+ ';'
       | '&#x' [0-9a-fA-F]+ ';' [WFC: Legal Character]

Well-formedness constraint: Legal Character

Characters referred to using character references must match the production for Char.

[2]   Char ::= #x9 | #xA | #xD | [#x20-#xD7FF] | [#xE000-#xFFFD] |
       [#x10000-#x10FFFF] /* any Unicode character, excluding the surrogate
                           blocks, FFFE, and FFFF. */
