Converting XML to Its Canonical Form

By default, Stylus Studio creates XML that conforms to the W3C XML 1.0 recommendation. You can also convert any XML document to its canonical form. When you convert XML to its canonical form, the resulting document conforms to the W3C Canonical XML 1.0 recommendation.



Although you can undo conversion to canonical form, consider using Save As to create a copy of the XML document prior to conversion.

To convert an XML document to its canonical form:
1. Open the XML document you want to convert to canonical XML.
2. Select Edit > Make Canonical XML from the Stylus Studio menu.

Alternative: Click the Make Canonical XML button ( ) on the tool bar.

The XML document is converted to its canonical form.

You can undo this operation ( Edit > Undo) if necessary.
