hi all,

some questions regarding the use of compression Transforms in XML Sig
constructs:

* is there a _standardized_ Transform Algorithm that can be used to
compress/decompress a resource? I am dealing with a bunch of gzipped
resources for which a decompression (un-gzip) algorithm should be applied
prior to calculation of the digests.

* if no such Transform Algorithms exist, does anyone have experience in
using application-specific decompression (zip/gzip/…) transforms?

* also, is there a way to convey the mime type of the original
(uncompressed) resource inside the Transform XML construct?

many thanks
best regards
jeroen
