Normalizing an XML document means removing whitespace characters (spaces, tabs, linefeeds, etc) from the XML document so that you can directly work with the element & attribute values. It's useful when you wish to compare 2 XML documents.
Canonicalizing an XML document is a much stricter process, which involves among other things, replacing character & parsed entity references with their values, and replacing CDATA sections with their character content.
