Hi John,

What does cross-referenced mean? Not show in the Xref: header and not in  
news.answers? That would happen ONLY if either (a) your leafnode has  
subscribed you to news.answers (meaning the group is listed in  
.../interesting.groups), because it wouldn't otherwise crosslink there, OR  
(b) you've set the create_all_links configuration option to 1 (or both a  
and b).

WRT the CR, it depends on where you're looking. Over the wire, you should  
have CRLF endings. Locally stored format depends on the software and OS
