This is required per OpenPGP specs. It has nothing to do with RSA vs. DSA keys but is the OpenPGP feature needed for one pass processing. If this Hash: line is not present, MD5 is assumed but DSA requires the use of a 160 bit hash and it should be SHA1 to be DSS compliant. ciao, Werner -- Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est. -- Augustinus
