[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition]

bstr (Basic String)

This element defines a binary basic string variant type, which can store any valid Unicode character. Unicode characters that cannot be directly represented in XML as defined by the XML 1.0 specification, shall be 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] To store the literal form of an escape sequence, the initial underscore shall itself be escaped (i.e. stored as _x005F_). [Example: The string literal _x0008_ would be stored as _x005F_x0008_. end example]

The possible values for this element are defined by the W3C XML Schema string datatype.
