I possibly am. My very empirical knowledge of crypto does not include RFC's.

I remember that in order to have GnuPG import e.g. key blocks generated
by prior to Windows and even Macintosh PGP 7.0 releases, I had to
convert those key blocks to Unix line-endings. Right now, using PGP
Desktop, I have no such problem.

Another erroneous guessing would be that the file that Brian has been
trying to import is not in ASCII format?
