OK, got any Perl savvy?

We already have a way to download all the messages thanks to Carl Daniel,
but unfortunately the whitespace following <BR> is always stripped by the
time it gets to his site, which kills the readability of source code. At my
site I get the whitespace, but I can't get his download software. I tried
the script, but it kills whitespace, too. A little poking at it (I have ZERO
perl expertise) tells me that it's nontrivial. My guess is that the best way
is to grab the whole page as a string and use a regexp to preprocess it by
replacing space characters with &nbsp in any line that starts with a space,
then pass it through HTML::TokeParser.
