You have to be subscribed to the mailing list to post to it. Otherwise, 
you'll have to wait till I would
have time to go thru the spam garbage and manually allow this.

I am not sure I clear understand what are you trying to do. 
<DigestValue/> contains the digested
result of processing <Reference/> element (with all transforms!). The 
signature is applied later to
the canonicalized <SignedInfo/> element. I would be happy to help you 
but I just don't understand
your questions (hint, take a look at XML DSig spec for details on 
Signature generation).
