  • Also, elements without contents (example; Transform element) will close the XML tag on the same tag (<Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#enveloped-signature" />). This is the equivalent on XML to <Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#enveloped-signature" ></Transform>, which means it is compatible with Java xmlsec implementation.
