Sorry for not providing enough information - and Rhodri, for sending
my second message I used the GMX webmail client rather than my usual
Linux client as I was testing it on windows. That must have screwed it
up, I need to download Thunderbird on Mozzila.

The thing that was messing it up was that the endlines are handled
differently on each each OS, so I changed the code to strip the
endlines to be:

    if == "nt":
        s = sauce.rstrip("\r\n")
        s = sauce.replace("\n", "")

This works fine now, ( returns nt on windows and posix on
Thanks for the help, and sorry for slow response and lack of detail,
I'm still trying to get used to this usenet thing :P

print "Tom"
