Could this be a size limit to the @id attribute?  I don't think these
values are supposed to exceed 64 characters, and even that seems
extraordinarily long so I'd recommend shortening this to see what happens.

In other words, GPG allows someone to be reasonably certain that communications signed by you actually are from you.  GPG is useful because it helps prevent third parties from altering code or intercepting conversations and altering the message.

I note this brings the character count for the @id attribute below
64... hm.

Enter <code>Seahorse</code> into the text box and select the Find.  Select the checkbox next to the ''seahorse'' package and select ''Apply'' to add the software.  You can also install '''Seahorse''' at the command line with the command <code>su -c "yum install seahorse"</code>.

You shouldn't eliminate the < and > characters as such, because that's
what the user will see.  In a parsed area like this you must represent
them with &lt; and &gt; to avoid them being interpreted as delimiters
for an element tag.

I'd also recommend substituting something more appropriate than <pre>
here, like this:

<screen><computeroutput>content line 1
content line 2
content line 3</computeroutput></screen>
