3.17.4: Article Washing
We call this ``article washing'' for a really good reason. Namely, the
A key was taken, so we had to use the W key instead.
Washing is defined by us as ``changing something from something to
something else'', but normally results in something looking better.

Do a Caesar rotate (rot13) on the article buffer
Unreadable articles that tell you to read them with Caesar rotate or rot13.
(Typically offensive jokes and such.)
It's commonly called ``rot13'' because each letter is rotated 13
positions in the alphabet, e. g. `
B' (letter #2) -> `
#15). It is sometimes referred to as ``Caesar rotate'' because Caesar
is rumored to have employed this form of, uh, somewhat weak encryption.

Treat quoted-printable (
Quoted-Printable is one common MIME encoding employed when sending
non-ASCII (i. e., 8-bit) articles. It typically makes strings like
déjà vu' look like `
d=E9j=E0 vu', which doesn't look very
readable to me.
Look for and display any X-Face headers

From header, the face will not be shown.
The default action under Emacs is to fork off an
xv to view the
face; under XEmacs the default action is to display the face before the
From header. (It's nicer if XEmacs has been compiled with X-Face
support---that will make display somewhat faster. If there's no native
X-Face support, Gnus will try to convert the
X-Face header using
external programs from the
pbmplus package and friends.) If you
want to have this function in the display hook, it should probably come
