I think there is a problem with HTSimplify changing the case
of characters in news URLs. Does anyone have a patch already?

For example, using "www" in verbose mode I see:

HTSimplify.. `' into
............ `'
HTNews: Looking for
Connecting to NewsHost ... ...
HTNews: Sending NNTP command: ARTICLE <>
NNTP Response: 430 No article by message-id <>, sorry.
