If you used openssl (commandline) 'ca' it puts a human-readable
display first as a "comment" and then the actual PEM certificate.
'x509' can be made to do this also. openssl when reading PEM files
ignores such "comments" but other implementations don't.
You can just edit the file to delete everything except the
----BEGIN line to the -----END line (inclusive). That's the
actual cert. If you want the program to do this for you,
just run it through 'x509' without making any change:
openssl x509 -in cert_with_comments -out cert_without_comments
Or you can easily do it with sed or awk on Unix (or on Windows
if you have Unix-like tools installed).
