Preliminary XML-Binary prototype demo

I am a hands-on guy so I have already put together a version of XML-Binary
implementation in my own application which works pretty well although I am
starting to see some limitations as I see new ways of using it.
Since it worked so well, I thought you guys might want to see something
working as well so I changed the SAXDOM demo to handle XML-Binary elements.
Just go to the SAXDOM demo and parse the Binary.xml file to see an image
appear in midst of colorized XML document. I am still having problems with
Navigator so use IE 4.0 if you got one. If not, don't sweat it. Just
Binary.xml file to see how XML-Binary is expressed in XML.
The demo uses xml:content-encoding and xml:content-type to indicate the
encoding type and content type in MIME. There are lots of issues but I
really want to keep the initial version (level 1) out there rather quickly
to address to basic needs first. I will post the list of issues real soon
I do appeciate the comments regarding XML-Binary but I sure could use more,
particularly from the XML-WG members and application developers in need of
embedded binary data. I realize that XML-Binary activity is somewhat on the
border of design and implementation domain but since I am not on the XML-SIG
mailing list, I have no choice but to grill the shrimps on the sidewalk.
Yummy, that smells good!;-)
