Thanks for the quick fixes to the Xml classes. More than 2/3 of my errors
are now gone :-)
Most of the remaining errors comes from a repetitive xmlns attribute in


This is the Xml generated using the MS framework:

This is the Xml generated by Mono:
<KeyInfo xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#"><KeyName

Both Xml fragment are equivalent - but make it hard to do direct string
compare in the unit tests.
Do we consider this a bug ?

From a Xml point-of-view this is equivalent, but if we strive a "perfect
match" with the MS framework - then it isn't.
Would it be hard to fix ?

As for myself I can live with that (i.e. making changes to the test suites).

Thanks again!
