Hello, I am using the SimpleSigner Demo program and I try to sign an xml file. The certificate we use contains the "&" symbol in it's Organization property (M&M Militzer and Munch BG Co. Ltd.). After signing the document, it becomes invalid, due to the special symbol "&".
I am sending the unsigned file and the signed file as attachment.

Thank you for your prompt answer.
We are working on a project that has to sign xml documents using different certificates. Unfortunately, some ceftificates contain the special symbol "&".
Anyway, we intend to buy a VCL component for C++Builder6 that signes xml files and to use it in our project. We need this component as soon as possible. So, can you tell us when we can expect this bug to be fixed and our problem solved?

I have the same problem with "&" character. Have you solved the problem yet? Are the fixpack ready? We have problem with our costumers who uses our software.
