Two questions:

1. How can I know as an implementor of xml_dsig whether a canonicalization
or transform with algorithm
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-xml-c14n-20000907> was done with or without

2. Consider the following example:
<Signature xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/07/xmldsig#">
   <Reference URI="#Stuff">
Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-xml-c14n-20000907" />
  <Object Id="Stuff">

Are the elements of Object treated as #PCDATA, or do I have to apply C14N?
