Subject: New XML Signature implementation and Update for Inter-Op

Hi Joseph,

Phaos Technology's XML Toolkit, which includes XML-DSIG and XML Encryption 
implementations, has just been released.

Below are the results of our tests vs. Merlin's interop examples. I would 
appreciate it if you could update the XML-DSIG interop matrix and toolkit 
links (http://www.phaos.com/e_security/prod_xml.html) accordingly.

Thanks,
