The xsd:hexBinary type represents binary data as a sequence of binary octets. It uses hexadecimal encoding, where each binary octet is a two-character hexadecimal number. Lowercase and uppercase letters A through F are permitted. For example, 0FB8 and 0fb8 are two equal xsd:hexBinary representations consisting of two octets.
