## 6.2.7 NormalizedString

This DataType defines a value which is a normalized string. Some Unicode characters have multiple equivalent binary representations consisting of sets of combining and/or composite Unicode characters. The Unicode standard defines a process called normalization that returns one binary representation when given any of the equivalent binary representations of a character. The Win32 and the .NET Framework currently support normalization forms C, D, KC, and KD, as defined in Annex15. This definition of NormalizedString uses Normalization Form C for all content, because this form avoids potential interoperability problems arising from the use of canonically equivalent, yet different, character sequences in document formats
