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. >That is what I was hoping to get people not to do.

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.
