Hi Joseph,

It was a temporary fix while I was on the road. Attached is an
updated single archive that is a replacement for -fifteen (simple
signatures), -sixteen (complex signature) and -seventeen (various
key info types).

Now using http://www.w3.org/Signature/2002/04/xml-stylesheet.b64.

Now using http://example.org/XXX.

Was trying for a new URI, but it got inlined.

Removed; that was from a hand-built template.

I've also reissued the certs with a longer validity, so the
cert-based examples will be more accessible.

It might be best to wait for someone to validate the signatures
before relying on their usefulness, although things seemed to be
working last time around.
