[Cdash] Attaching files to test results or build records

I tried using notes, unfortunately this only seems to work with 
plaintext. The output of the tool I am attempting to integrate (C++test) 
takes the form of a collection of XML, HTML and image files. I was 
hoping to be able to create an archive and attach that to the build for 
easy retrieval from CDash.

Is there a way to do this?
