The files are served (correctly, AFAIK) as text/plain, and display fine in 
Mozilla under Linux (trunk build 2002041822, which is slightly newer than 
the 1.0 release candidate) and lynx (Version 2.8.4dev.16).

There are other MIME issues--the .md5 files are served as application/zip 
and application/x-tar, and all .rpm and .rpm.md5 files are served as 
audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin--but all of the .asc files are OK.

The contents of the bz2.asc file displayed in my Mozilla browser window 
match the contents of the same file downloaded with wget and displayed with

although I don't remember seeing those symptoms.  What release are you 
running, and what happens--do you get a download prompt or just a blank page?
