Including -admin back in the discussion...
Well, binary data in XML needs to be uuencoded afaik, and of course you'll want to put it in a CDATA block.
PostgreSQL doesn't have any XML support built-in, but there's at least one project that has stuff to help deal with XML. I think it's in pgFoundry, though there may be some stuff in contrib as well.

Subject: Re: [ADMIN] file in posgres
Naybe you missunderstood me, i need to export all the data of a table into an XML format, and I'm afraid to have any trouble with the bytea data type that I use to store files. Can't you tell if there is any problem with that and if not how do I do the export to XML???

No reason to do that in the database... though if you end up storing XML
you should just stick it in a text field.
