+Summary: DataSet Problems
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+When using a DataSet if the type definition for on of the columns is byte
+array then the WriteXml method does not work. This happens when i try to
+serialise a dataset and write the xml file on the disk. This happens only
+if one of the column is byte array. The dataset writes the xml file but
+writes the object name like(System.Byte []) instead of converting byte
+array value to base64 string and then writing it.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Define a table which has a column that takes byte aray. If the the table
+is loadded on the dataset it is populated. Then write the xml file using
+WriteXml method.
+Actual Results:
+It writes the current object instance name instead of the value
+Expected Results:
+It should write the value as on .NET Framework.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+This is happening because the dataset class does not convert the byte array
+into the base64 string. Where as the .NET Frame work dataset class writes
+the data after converting the byte array to base64 string
