When I copy and paste the entry shown, it enters in the command as the number, 
not what is printed on the web page.  A box entitled Code: With an address 
inside the box to install Wine.  A similar thing happened when I copied the 
Ritchey key.  The title of the download was Jaunty Jackelope, but when you 
clicked to save it, it went into the Authentication tab as the Ritchey key 
appropriately worded.

When I clicked on "Click this link" I get a Security Warning first that says:  
This untrusted page links to apt://wine.  Do you want to follow the link?  I 
clicked on 'Follow'.  When I did, the next warning came on screen saying:  
Error _ Konqueror, Protocol not supported apt.  I clicked on 'OK' and the 
screen returned to the 'ckick this link' page.

That is where I stopped.  I am not going to go past a block in the procedure 
created by someone other than me.  I am not experimenting at all.  I have 
accurately described every step so far including this response.  I have 
duplicated my steps to make sure I did not forget anything.
