One way to do this would be to encode the special characters found in XML or HTML strings that the parser recognizes. You could use "&lt;" and "&gt;" instead of "<" and ">". The binary string too could be encoded to translate "<", ">", "(quotes)", "&" and "(space)".

Subject: question about embedded data in XML

We have a need to embed the following types of information in an XML document:

strings that themselves contain XML (which we DON'T want parsed)
strings that themselves contain HTML (which we also don't want parsed)
encoded data that may be binary data encoded which could contain ANYTHING
(which we also don't want parsed).

Does anyone have any recommendations on XML best practices to handle the above
data needs?

If more info is needed, I can provide that.
