The W3C XML Core Working Group would like to announce the publication
of the Canonical XML Last Call Working Draft (dated 2000 January 19)
at http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-c14n .
This document describes a subset of the information contained
in an XML document and a syntax for expressing that subset.
This syntax, called Canonical XML, is designed to encode the
logical structure of XML documents; two XML documents whose
Canonical-XML form is identical will be considered equivalent
for the purposes of many applications.
The W3C Membership and other interested parties are invited to
review the specification, make comments, and report implementation
experience. Please send comments to
mailto:www-xml-canonicalization-comments at w3.org
(which is publicly archived at
The Last Call period ends the 22 February 2000.
Note: The XML Core Working Group strongly solicits commentary,
especially from early implementors of this Working Draft, on
the appropriateness of the requirement that Canonical XML be
in W3C normalized text form as well. The Working Group has
published a minority report on this question at
A rationale for the majority viewpoint embodied in this draft has
