Frederick,
I am making these changes now, But I am getting some problems with xmlspec.
The Signature 1.1 spec has a separate lists of Authors and Editors. But 
the xmlspec format allows only one list. Should I just put them all in 
one list for now?
Also I wanted to put in the proposed XPath subset, but that requires me 
to have styles for "inserted" text and "deleted" text. I am not sure how 
to put that in xmlspec, Is there any way to insert raw html in xmlspec 
files?
