And the reason I do this, rather than attach the Notebook, is that it
simply does not work (I assume because MathGroup is moderated and the
moderation process affects the attachment).  I have certainly managed
to attach Notebooks to postings to other newsgroups.

I do this all the time: in a text editor, select all text between

	Notebook[ ...
and
	...
	]

and simply paste into an open Mathematica Notebook.  Mathematica will
ask you if you want to interpret the text.  Say yes, and voila ...

A really good reason for posting Notebooks rather than InputForm is that
I like using greek symbols, TraditionalForm notation, and operators
such as \[Del], and this is not so easy using InputForm.
