+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: ReadBase64 of XmlTextReader throws exception.
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. create an xml document with several empty elements
+2. try to read the content of these empty elements with the XmlTextReader
+and the method int ReadBase64( byte[], int, int)
+3. Note the exception "Invalid Base 64 character". Microsft .Net 1.0 and
+1.1 return gracefully by not reading anything and returning 0. 
+Actual Results:
+exception "Invalid Base 64 character"
+Expected Results:
+Microsft .Net 1.0 and 1.1 return gracefully by not reading anything and
+returning 0. 
+How often does this happen? 
+every time with empty elements in an xml documetn
+Additional Information:
+This can easily be fixed by adding 
+  if (IsEmptyElement)
+       return 0;
+in the beginning of the ReadBase64() method implementation
