Hello,

I am a new comer to the XML DSIG.

After reading the XMLDSIG documents, I am wondering how a XML data object is
hashed.
For example, an object has the following data:
<book>
<name> XML for dummy </name>
<author> Suresh </author>
</book>

How is the input stream to the hash function composed? Does it contain the
XML tags? (I guess so).
How are the spaces handled?

Thank you!

Steve
