I have the following suggested changes based on review

(a) change 2.1, 2.1.1, 2.2, 2.3 "digest value removed" to "digest  
value modified to clarify not a real digest value"

(b) Replace "idem" with "Same as previous"

(c) 4.3.3.2 "failed 2001 xpointer Candidate Recommendation" to "2001  
XPointer Candidate Recommendation that was no progressed"

(d) 4.3.3.2 add "  Discouraged use of xpointer() scheme "

(e) 6.5.2 change "New section." to "New section defining Canonical  
XML 1.1 algorithm, including identifiers for the algorithm."

(f) References
Added references to support changes and update references.  Add  
references for XPointer, C14N11, Exclusive Canonicalization, XML  
Signature 2002, RFC 4514,  RFC 3986.

(g) add item for 4.3.3.1 change

Clarify that URI value for ds:Reference URI attribute must conform to  
XML Schema but that it should be escaped according to URI  
recommendation upon value generation.

regards, Frederick
