Dear C14N implementors,

how did you all solve the 'problem', that [1] (Section 2.1 Data Model) 
specifies:

 " ... input need not be validated. However, the attribute value 
normalization and entity reference resolution MUST be performed in 
accordance with the behaviors of a validating XML processor."

The test cases from the Canonical XML spec do not validate (like the spec 
allows). Nevertheless, ID attributes have to be identified etc. Did you 
implemented your own DTD handler?


Christian
