Subject: RE: Leading 0x on hash?

I agree. The 0x prefix is mostly to help differentiate literals in languages/contexts that provide for differing base (10, 16, 8) and not a convention associated with hash function outputs.

I do not think that they should have a leading "0x".  I have never seen a hash value with a leading "0x".  It is a string value and the description describes the meaning for hash functions that produce integer values.
