Thanks, Scott.  I just used a cut-n-paste to a gnome-terminal, ran "gpg
--import ..." on it and it worked.  This is the method I use most often,
so I guess I'll stay with it.  I didn't use it on this page earlier
because cutting and pasting sometimes horks on big chunks of text... a
limitation of the clipboard size, I'm told.

So on to the next step.  Thanks again.
