There is a Perl script 'pgphtml':
which will sign (and, usefully, remove signatures from) HTML files. Though
the current release does not support GnuPG, I've sent the author a diff
to add this support, which should be published shortly.
This makes the process of signing and maintaining signed pages pretty
easy, though admittedly not cut & paste (easily bound to a vi macro
though). However, as released it puts a --- BEGIN PGP SIGNED WEB PAGE ---
banner at the top of the rendered page. You could remove that line from
the script if it annoys you.

I prefer encrypted mail (see headers for PGP key)
