Section 3.3.3:

  "Before the value of an attribute is passed to the application
  or checked for validity, the XML processor must 
  normalize it as follows: ..."

Secton 2.9:

Validity Constraint: Standalone Document Declaration

  "attributes with values subject to normalization, where the
  attribute appears in the document with a value which will
  change as a result of normalization,..."

According to Section 3.3.3, the attribute's value is normalized 
before its checked for validity. How can the condition in
Section 2.9 ever be true?

Does the XML processor actually check for this Validity Constraint
violation before normalization?
