Canon refers to all admissible evidence. If two canon "facts" disagree with each other and no rationalization can be found, then only one of the two canon facts would be considered a part of continuity.

Writers are often more concerned about what is a part of continuity than what is canon, and tend to answer questions with that in mind. For example, in the canon novelization of ''A New Hope'', [[Luke Skywalker|Luke]] was designated Blue 5. In the canon movie, he was Red 5. The "Red 5" designation is considered a part of continuity even though both conflicting facts are canon. (See the ''Star Wars'' canon section below for more details on how ''Star Wars'' canon is determined.)
