Using Firefox, brought up the page mentioned above, clicked on File >
Save Page As, gave a directory and filename, and clicked OK. Nothing at
all mysterious or unusual. After the first download I used vi to trim
off the couple html lines above and below the key delimiters (even
though I was almost sure it didn't matter-- gpg would find the
delimiters). For the second download (after the first file wouldn't
import) I left the little bit of html code in the file and got the same

After the second failure I did a diff on the two files and the only
difference was that aforementioned html code.

Did you download the key from the page cited above? Or somewhere else?
