Any XML (Extensible Markup Language) document is part of a set of XML
documents that are logically equivalent within an application context,
but which vary in physical representation based on syntactic changes
permitted by XML 1.0 and Namespaces in XML.  This specification
describes a method for generating a physical representation, the
canonical form, of an XML document that accounts for the permissible
changes.  Except for limitations regarding a few unusual cases, if two
documents have the same canonical form, then the two documents are
logically equivalent within the given application context.  Note that
two documents may have differing canonical forms yet still be
equivalent in a given context based on application-specific
equivalence rules for which no generalized XML specification could
account.
