I am using the Delimited Text Driver to create a file full of HL7 messages to be sent to another system. The receiving system is wanting a Beginning and End of Message indicators of:

BOM “Vertical Tab character” (0x0B)
EOM "Field Separator character" (0x1C) and a "Carriage Return" (0x0D)

It does not look like 0x0B or 0x1C are supported escape characters in XML 1.0.

For the Carriage Return I am using, <xsl:variable name="CR" select="&apos;&#xd;&apos;"/>

Has anybody had to use these characters in a StyleSheet?
