I've updated the widget signature document distributor file naming  
convention to the following after discussing this with Josh (thanks  

Naming convention for a distributor signature:
"signature" [1-9][0-9]* ".xml"
Each distributor signature MUST have a name consisting of the string  
"signature" followed by a digit in the range 1-9 inclusive, followed  
by zero or more digits in the range 0-9 inclusive and then ".xml", as  
stated by the BNF. An example is "signature20.xml".

Leading zeros are disallowed in the numbers.

Any file name that does not match this BNF MUST be ignored. Thus a  
file named "signature01.xml" will be ignored. A warning MAY be  

There is no requirement that all the signature file names form a  
contiguous set of numeric values.

These signatures MUST be sorted numerically based on the numeric  
portion of the name. Thus signature2.xml preceeds signature11.xml, for  

See draft

I also updated the notation section, changed the code format to be  
italic (without color), and updated the body style to not be quite so  

Please indicate any comment or corrections on the list.


regards, Frederick
