specifications in the Widgets 1.0 family of specifications such as  
[Widgets-APIs], [Widgets-DigSig], and [Widgets-Updates] specifications.

2. Change the first paragraph of Step 4 in section 8.2 to:

If a widget user agent does not support [Widgets-DigSig], go to Step  
6; otherwise, the algorithm to locate digital signatures for the  
widget is as follows:

3. Signature handling should be specified in [Widgets-DigSig], thus,  
replace all of Step 5 in section 8.2 with the following:

The algorithm that describes how to process the list of signatures  
created in step 4 is defined in [Widgets-DigSig].

And add the processing model currently defined in Step 5 to [Widgets-
