bstr (Basic String)

This element defines a binary basic string variant type. For all characters that cannot be represented in XML as defined by the XML 1.0 specification, the characters are escaped using the Unicode numerical character representation escape character format _xHHHH_, where H represents a hexadecimal character in the character's value. [Example: The Unicode character 8 is not permitted in an XML 1.0 document, so it shall be escaped as _x0008_. end example]

The possible values for this element are defined by the XML Schema string datatype.
