Recommended XML / Base64 encoding libraries?

I'm looking for an open-source, cross-platform (including Win32) XML reading/writing library which supports Base64 encoding (for binary data). I hope there is something rather standard and popular. If this doesn't exist, is there such a Base64 encoding/decoding library? Thanks in advance.

There are many separate libraries for those two tasks - I can't see a reason for needing one library to do both things when you could just pass the base64 strings to the base64 libraries. What language are you using?
