Subject: Xerces 1.4.4: Exposing XML Schema normalized values [README]

Following the bug #1228 report [
http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1228 ], we want to
introduce a feature that will allow users to control whether DOM/SAX
APIs expose normalized or "initial" (specified in XML document instance)
element values.

In previous Xerces1 versions by default we exposed element values that
were normalized according to XML Schema REC.

For Xerces 1.4.4 we plan to introduce a feature
"../validation/normalize-element-contents" with the default value
"false"[!] meaning that applications will no longer receive normalized
element values.

Question to users: given the fact that Xerces2 by default will NOT
expose normalized values (we believe this is the correct behavior), do
you mind us breaking compatibility for Xerces1 1.4.4 release?

Do you prefer us introducing the
"../validation/normalize-element-contents" feature with the default
value set to true?

We plan to release Xerces 1.4.4. as soon as possible, so please express
your concerns if you have any.

Thank you,

I have posted a patch for the Bug #1228, which is a critical
problem for XML-Signature.  I hope Xerces 1.4.4 release with
applying the patch.
