Removing whitespace in the .php page itself trims two of the unwanted
newlines, as I've known about for ages, but since even a single empty
line still confuses GPG, yes, it turns out there is an easy fix.  Try
it now (with GPG 1.4.0):

  %gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.kjsl.com:80 --search "jis mit"

NB:  Please access the keyserver directly (on port 11371) whenever possible.
