   Re: [xml-dev] XML 1.1 and Unicode normalization

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

this i18n novice was perplexed upon first reading of wd-xml11/charmod and
remains perplexed upon rereading cr-xml11/charmod.

it would be clear how to proceed if xml-11 does not mention charmod.

it would be clear how to proceed if xml-11 incorporates charmod and requires
processors to normalize - thereby entailing normalization-checking.

to specify that the processor must, at option, check normalization, but must
not transform to normal form, while the referenced specification requires that
all "producers of strings" ensure (not just check) that they are normalized,
led this implementer to put the proposals back, to wait for later versions.
