The Tab character (#9) shouldn't appear in headers.
But, like with everything on USENET, you can never 100% rely on this.
You've already downloaded the source for XanaNews, so have a look in
NewsGlobals.pas at the FixHeaders procedure. It tidies them up, by
merging split lines, replacing tabs with spaces, etc.
