<snip> Shouldn't gnupg be more generous in what it accepts here? Eg. rfc2045 explicitly requires MUA's to simply ignore any non-base64 character in a base64 encoding, because MTA's are known to add and remove trailing whitespace for their convenience. Ditto for QP. Since radix64 _is_ base64, I think these rules should apply to OpenPGP ascii-armoured messages, too. (and looking into rfc2440, 6.4, I see, they do). Marc - -- All animals are equal.
