On the other hand, if LEX assumes an attribute type as 'unknown' or if LEX could not evaluate the schema at all, it uses the string editor if the server returns the attribute value as a string and not as binary data. This would be the case for the following attribute syntaxes:

1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.1
