RE: Difference between "normalize" and "canonicalize"?

Hi Folks,

Great responses! Thank you very much.

Along a similar line ...

Consider the XSLT specification: in Appendix G is the "Schema for XSLT Stylesheets" [1] and it is listed as "non-normative." 

1. Why is the Schema non-normative? 

2. What does it mean for the Schema to be non-normative? 

3. Does it mean that where there are discrepancies between what the prose says and what the Schema says then the prose wins? 

4. Why are there discrepancies? When will they be resolved? 

5. When will the Schema become normative? 

6. Can someone, outside the W3C, create a normative Schema for XSLT? 

7. Or, is creating a Schema for XSLT exclusively within the jurisdiction of the W3C XSLT working group?

Ditto for the other W3C specifications that list in their appendix a non-normative Schema.
