How to verify Ubuntu iso with md5sum

The download page on the website currently points to this page as a
guide to how to verify that a download has been successful:

That page in turn references:

which contains a list of all the various hashes.

This page is supposed to be an officially acceptable and secure list and
 (unlike other wiki pages) is not open to all to edit. It is however
quite annoying to maintain :)

I was talking with Colin and he expressed a concern at this approach. He
preferred an approach which explains how to verify the md5sums using the
 MD5SUMS.gpg file. Does everyone agree?

If so, can someone look at the former wiki page and update it with
instructions to do this?

When done, we can then nuke the UbuntuHashes page.
