    The problem is that ASCII characters below hex 0x20 are invalid in XML. We would have to specify a special encoding (base64 ?) for those.

    Invalid XML characters are not base-64 encoded and the XML node data type is set to "bin.base64".

    This enables round-trip conversion of MSI files containing strings with characters not allowed in XML.
