Subject: line feed normalization in C14N

Hi, All!

I have a question about line feed normalization in C14N. The spec says
that :


    -  All whitespace in character content is retained (excluding
characters removed during 
    line feed normalization)   

    If an XML document must be converted to a node-set, XPath REQUIRES
    an XML processor be used to create the nodes of its data model to
fully represent 
    the document. The XML processor performs the following tasks in

1.	normalize line feeds 

2.	... 

During discussion in xmlsec mailing list we came up with two
    1) All '\r' characters from the document should be removed when
document is parsed 
    by XML processor.
    2) All '\r' should be converted to "&#D;" by the parser.

I would appreciate if someone can clarify this part of the

Thank you in advance,
Aleksey Sanin
