Title: Re: [xml-dev] Canonicalization software

I'm wondering how you are going to test these tools. The canonicalization process should not change the data, though it will re-order attributes and change prefixes.

You'd be welcome to use DeltaXML to compare the pre-canonical form with the canonical form for your test data - either online at

or let me know and we can provide a command-line version for you (you'd be better off with this if you are using local DTDs).

Look forward to hearing your results!

I downloaded and installed it from the W3C CVS, but even after upgrading libxml to the latest 2.6.5 version, it flunks its own regression tests. I'm not sure whether the bug is in the Python code or libxml.  :-(
