Re: [xml-dev] interpreting W3C C14N Rec.

Follow-up: As nearly as I can tell, the W3C Recommended syntax of start tags in all versions of HTML is such that it's OK for SPACE+ to appear before, after, and between attribute value specifications. And SPACE does include LFs and CRs.

 FYI: The reason I got into the XML canonicalization document is that

elements so represented.
The way to answer this for HTML documents is to look at the HTML 5 spec;
if it's not answered there, file a bug against HTML 5.1. If it is answered,
file a bug if browsers don't follow what it says.

For the XML syntax of HTML 5, the XML Rec (1.0 5e I think, but check the references in HTL 5) would be an appropriate reference.

Within attribute values themselves, of course, attribute value normalization applies when parsing XML.
