When the XMLTask has an OperationType set to Diff, then this enumeration is used to sets the options that affect the behavior of the comparison, as well as the resulting XDL DiffGram. The enumerations used will determine what items are included for consideration during the comparison.
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.XMLTask (in Microsoft.SqlServer.XMLTask.dll)

Specifies that Comment nodes are not compared.
Specifies that document type declaration (DTD) is not compared.
Specifies that the namespace Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) of the element and attribute names are not compared. This option also implies that the name prefixes are ignored.

Specifies that significant white spaces are not compared and that all text nodes are normalized by discarding any leading and trailing white space characters (#x9, #x10, #x13, #x20) and replacing sequences of white space characters with a single space (#x20) character.
Specifies that the XML declaration is not compared.
