I have a worry about the way the GPG signatures are displayed when

just sending a HTML message with that horizontal line, "This message is
digitally signed", icon (etc.) in place of a .sig?  And would this be
obviously different from a signed message other than by viewing source?

Not currently no.  Jeff has been aware of the problem for awhile and has
been trying to come up with a solution.  The tough part is that in
multi-part messages individual parts can be signed/not signed so a gui
to display that is non trivial (ie, just can't put an icon in the header
area because only some of the messages maybe signed).
