AFAIK, neither Internet Explorer nor Netscape Navigator allow you to
add additional header lines. As others have suggested, you'll have to
use a better newsposter or the FAQ server. I mail my FAQ from Netscape
Navigator to the FAQ server instead of using my newsreader
(Newswatcher -- which can add headers) because it's too big for the
newsreader to handle. Navigator also complains unless I attach it as
a plain text file. You may need to do the same trick with Explorer.
