Abstract Syntax Notation X (ASN.X) is a semantically equivalent
Extensible Markup Language (XML) representation for
Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) specifications.
ASN.X completely avoids the numerous ambiguities inherent in
the ASN.1 language; therefore, specifications written in ASN.X are
much easier to parse and manage than original ASN.1 specifications. 
ASN.X, together with the Robust XML Encoding Rules (RXER),
constitutes a schema language for XML documents that offers,
through other ASN.1 encoding rules, alternative compact binary
encodings for XML instance documents.  This memo defines an Experimental 
Protocol for the Internet community.
