OOPS: (was: first pass parseType="Literal" text for primer)

Am I missing something, or does this really not stand up?:

The string used as the lexical form of the XML Literal is the Exclusive XML 
Canonicalization [XML-XC14N]) with comments and with empty 
InclusiveNamespaces PrefixList of the literal text l, i.e. the entire 
element content of this property element.

As I recall, the "Exclusive XML Canonicalization" is an *octet* sequence, 
not a character sequence, and as such is not eligible to be a lexical form.
