Canonical XML Candidate Recommendation Updated
The Canonical XML Candidate Recommendation has been revised based on a four week Call for Implementation. An interoperability report is available. Canonical XML permits applications such as digital signatures to determine whether an application has substantively changed a document beyond syntactical variances permitted by XML 1.0 and Namespaces in XML. Canonical XML is produced by the XML Signature Working Group, a joint effort of the IETF and W3C.
