Subject RE: Sending pictures or files through Web Services

Even with MIME or DIME, the binary data is sent in base64binary or
hexbinary. The difference is it is not send as a part of the soap
message. The difference is akin to attaching a jpeg image to an email
rather than pasting the image in the body of the email.
