Konrad,

At 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-canonicalization-comments/20
07Jun/0000
you sent a copy of this message to the C14N 1.1 comment list.

As you know, our current plan is to remove the algorithm from 
Appendix A, augment the prose in section 3.2 accordingly, and 
replace Appendix A with a list of test cases that the implementors 
found helpful during the CR period.

For the purposes of the Disposition of Comments, do you accept
this resolution of your comment?

Please reply to the www-xml-canonicalization-comments@w3.org
as soon as feasible so that we can complete our DoC.

thanks,

paul

Paul Grosso for the XML Core WG
