<utter_tangent> The (U.S.) medical records system that started at the Veterans' Administration and has now spread to all but all parts of the U.S. Federal government that handle electronic health records is ASCII encoded, and readable. Called "The Blue Button," there is even an HL7->Blue Button file converter. Score one for human readable. </utter_tangent> --dan  www.va.gov/BLUEBUTTON/Resources.asp  www.hl7.org/implement/standards/product_brief.cfm?product_id=288 _______________________________________________ The cryptography mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.metzdowd.com/mailman/listinfo/cryptography
