+Summary: Web Method and Invalid Format Exception
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+When a web method of web service is called if the webmethod returns a byte
+array to the client, It throws an Invalid format exception. This is because
+the byte array will be converted to base64 string on a Microsoft webservice
+and hence throws an invalid format exception on mono client.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create a webservice which has a method that returns the byte array. Try
+to access the web service. The value is returned from the web method. But
+throws an exception on the client side.
+Actual Results:
+Throws an invalid format exception
+Expected Results:
+Should convert the base 64 string to byte array and should work the way it
+works on .NET framework
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+This is happening because the .NET Framework converts the base64 string
+returned by the service to byte arry internally if the return datatype of
+the web method is byte array
