If I add <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href=""?> to XML document, could that have effect to a signature?

If you reference the xml element by Id, then xml-stylesheet processing instruction should not be included in the digest calculation.
If you reference the whole xml document (URI=""), then <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href=""?> should be included in the digest calculation. At the moment it is not included, fixing.
Thanks for pointing this.
