This document defines encoding instructions that may be used in an
Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) specification to alter how ASN.1
values are encoded by the Robust XML Encoding Rules (RXER) and
Canonical Robust XML Encoding Rules (CRXER), for example, to encode a
component of an ASN.1 value as an Extensible Markup Language (XML)
attribute rather than as a child element.  Some of these encoding
instructions also affect how an ASN.1 specification is translated
into an Abstract Syntax Notation X (ASN.X) specification.  Encoding
instructions that allow an ASN.1 specification to reference
definitions in other XML schema languages are also defined.  This memo 
defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
