Hi Steven,

The working group reduced the number of alternatives to one per hash algorithm
as requested.  The only difference is that the keywords chosen were based on the
algorithm names as given in their specifications: MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384
and SH-512.
The examples were also corrected.

Thanks,
John Boyer
