I confirm that I do see the keys now on the same system I got empty pages
yesterday, so the server-side problem is solved.

Here are a few things you might want to experience:
1* Empty IE's cache, restart IE and retry. You should not believe IE whn
it pretends it reloaded a page.
2* Edit the files associations. I think I remember that IE uses
extensions instead of MIME types (or maybe some random mix of both). The
files have extension .asc and are of type text/plain. I doubt that any
special treatment is done on text/plain files, but .asc files may be
associated with some special treatment.
3* Install Firefox.

Whoever owns the machine you are using, he/she will have to thank you for
the dozens viruses, worms, spywares etc... that will not break his/her
computer down thanks to you.
4* Use some file downloader such as getright.

Good luck,
Jean Delvare
