Does the QtmhWrStout api convert the data passed to it from ebcdic to ascii?

I ask because I am trying to send excel xml formatted data as an
attachment to the browser and the results are gibberish when opened in
excel.

I am sending different variations of Content-type and
Content-disposition followed by two X'15' line feeds.
wrtDta = 'Content-type: application/vnd.ms-excel' +
newLine +
'Content-disposition: ' +
'attachment; filename=test.xls' + newLine +
newLine ;
pr_qtmhwrstout( wrtdta: %len(wrtdta): wperror ) ;

another version of the content-type I tried:
wrtDta = 'Content-type: application/' +
'vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet' +
newLine +
'Content-disposition: ' +
'attachment; filename=test.xls' + newLine +
newLine ;

then I send the excel xml formatted data: Where each line ends with
x'15' . So far I have written the following text to qtmhwrstout as
ebcdic and then as ascii. Both times excel shows garbage.
