SignedXml.CheckSignature returns false when the root element has namespace declarations


I am using SignedXml with RSACryptoServiceProvider to sign some XML.
the verification seems to work OK if there is no namespace declaration
on the root element of the XML but if there is one it always returns

here's a complete example:

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
doc.LoadXml("<foo xmlns:foo=\"foo\" />");
SignedXml sx = new SignedXml(doc);
RSACryptoServiceProvider csp = new RSACryptoServiceProvider();
sx.SigningKey = csp;
Reference refe = new Reference("");
XmlElement signature = sx.GetXml();
SignedXml sx2 = new SignedXml(doc);
bool result = sx.CheckSignature(csp);

note that it's signing and verifying exactly the same bit of XML with
exactly the same CryptoServiceProvider. The example as shown always
returns false but if you replace the second line with:

    doc.LoadXml("<foo />");

The CheckSignature method returns true.

Is there some subtlety with the way namespaces work in XML signatures
or is this a bug in the implementation?

note that  the namespace isn't even referenced in the XML content so I
wouldn't expect it to have any effect. If I add a simlar namespace
declaration to a sub-node it doesn't affect the signature at all.

Sales Return Quantities Entry in SOP: Returns
We use SOP to process returns. When we initially create the return, we indicate "Return" in the Sales Return Quantities Entry (via Quantities Returned field). Then our warehouse checks out the returned merchandise to determine if it has been damaged, etc. However, when we go back into the Return document, the Sales Return Quantities Entry does not open again to allow a change from "Returned" to "Damaged." Any suggestions? Thanks, Have you looked at inventory item transfer entries, using the "Quantity Type" button? You should be able to transfer ...

How do I prevent an autofill column returning a zero
I am a bit of a beginner & this might seem obvious, but when I create an autofill column, it seems to return a zero by default, so that any chart I then create has a vertical drop to zero and makes the scale look ridiculous. Any help would be appreciated It might help to post the formula in the cell. I had the same problem i think you had. In my Page1, you would put an "x" to transfer over to my Page2, and so it would not have a "0" on Page2, it put in the following: =IF(page1!O24="X","X","") The "" will return an empty cel...

carriage return in RichEdit
Okay, I've done a ton of searching on this one and I've found a lot of vague hints that this is possible, and not one answer so far. So I have a question for you. Is it possible to get CR/LF OUT of a Rich edit? I'm on xp, so I have CRichEditCtrl using Rich Edit 3.0. It says it handles CR/LF. Now, my understanding is that internally, it converst CR/LF to LF internally. If I make a call to .GetWindowText(), I get all the text correctly, but just the LF, it doesn't convert it back to CR/LF. The problem is, I want good old CR/LF in my output, and a CString.Replace(_T("\n...

XmlDsigC14NTransform signedXml.ComputeSignature()
1. signedXml.ComputeSignature() outputs a digest value of something. what is it? I mean, how can i get it? I get the canonical form of my xml with XmlDsigC14NTransform then digest it but the digest value is different. 2.signedXml.ComputeSignature() uses XmlDsigC14NTransform. But how?

Array not working correctly Returns FALSE on second part

How do I delete hard returns after footnote separators?
