Please consider the following for inclusion in errata:

1) That the line in the W3C Canonicalization 1.1 specification that
states

"The first parameter of input to the XML canonicalization method is

either an XPath node-set or an octet stream containing a well-formed XML
document."

be changed to

"The first parameter of input to the XML canonicalization method is
either an octet stream or an XPath node-set. If it is an octet stream,
the octet stream must contain a well-formed XML document. (Note: If the first 
parameter is an XPath node-set containing more than one element node, 
then the output of the canonicalization algorithm will result in an output
element node for each input element node.)"


The above is an amendment to the earlier email I sent on this topic:
