If you want to do it in XSLT (you're posting here so I guess that's the
case) then you will have to transform both structures into your own
canonical stucture (or at least one structure into the other) and then
you can use Xpath 2.0's deep-equal() function.

(Canonical XML is more about writing out the same XML in the same way
every time, so I don't think it applies here)
