Subject Re: Reference URI and Xerces
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2006 09:29:46 GMT
Which software do you use to create the signature? Usually the Reference
is set by the caller in the Transforms elements. And the validator is
right - it's not a valid URI, an URI cannot contain a #-sign in the
middle of its name AFAIK.
