How did you download them?
I downloaded them simply by clicking on the links in Chrome on CentOS Linux. Some friends using Chrome on Windows have also reported the same. I also have gotten the same result with Firefox.

However when I download the files via wget, they check out fine.

I suspect that the web server is doing an extra gzip compression of the content if the browser presents an Accept-Encoding:gzip header. It looks like the server is responding with a Content-Encoding:gzip header, which means the browser should decompress it on the fly, but it looks like that's not happening for whatever reason. Disabling gzip compression of non-plain text MIME types on the server should fix the problem.
