OE is useless anyway (at least as a newsreader).

I was talking about the gmane web interface as an alternative to Google's.  
They have an NNTP server but also three http-based interfaces: RSS-feed, 
blog-style & framed (looks more or less like a newsreader).

...

Tested it in gmane.test, posting through their web interface preserves 
whitespace.
