You don't have it both ways :) You can't be guaranteed what software your recipient is using; therefore, you have to decide one way or the other; be safe and use algo 1, which has worse performance, or take a risk the person won't be able to verify the signature correctly, and use compress algorithm 2. - -- Frank Tobin "To learn what is good and what is to be valued, those truths which cannot be shaken or changed."
