How do I import a STARWEB game into the client?

Save your turn reports to a .txt or .eml file, then import them with File | Import.

Hmm, I think it only gives that particular message if you attempt to read an XML file that's not an RSW XML file. But a Starweb turnsheet will never be an XML file, unless something's new and different over at Flying Buffalo these days.

It's expecting a text file, that starts with a line like "Game SW-1234 blahdyblah".
