Q. about 'DOM-Hash-total'
Hi all! A question concerning security, I hop it is 'on topic' for this list ... Recently I have been playing around a bit with the Security Suite from IBM-Alphaworks called XSS4J. One of the tools I tested was the GetDigest method. This method gives you a kind of hash-total of a DOM object. Now as I understood, whitespace is insignificant, provided there is DTD to specify to the Parser that there aren't any mixed content elements. Yet the following two documents yield different hash-totals, can anybody explain why? Document 1: <!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "E:\My Documents\xml\voorbeelden\DOMHash\foobar.dtd"> <foo> <bar>blablabla</bar> </foo> Document 2: <!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "E:\My Documents\xml\voorbeelden\DOMHash\foobar.dtd"> <foo><bar>blablabla</bar></foo> DTD: <!ELEMENT foo (bar)> <!ELEMENT bar (#PCDATA)>
