Regarding the section numbering in Signature 2.0, unless someone objects, I suggest flattening the hierarchy in the examples section. Specifically, I will change the sectioning of the example section from

[[
2. Signature Overview and Examples
	• 2.1 Simple Example (Signature, SignedInfo, Methods, and References)
		• 2.1.1 More on Reference
			• 2.1.1.1 The Simple Example in "2.0 mode"
	• 2.2 Extended Example (Object and SignatureProperty)
	• 2.3 Extended Example (Object and Manifest)
]]

to

[[
2. Signature Overview and Examples
	• 2.1 Simple Example (Signature, SignedInfo, Methods, and References)
	* 2.2 More on Reference
	  2.3The Simple Example in "2.0 mode"
	• 2.4 Extended Example (Object and SignatureProperty)
	• 2.5 Extended Example (Object and Manifest)
]]

There is no need in my opinion for the nesting here.

Regarding the examples, if we work up a new example, any reason to include your original examples as well, Meiko?
