OEP URL Macro not working

Hello,

I can download the following webpage (link level = 0) perfectly fine, until I substitute a macro for the year and the month in the URL. (Though it doesn't matter this month, I did check previous months to learn if month names were abbreviated or spelled-out. They are spelled-out.)

So anyway, this works fine:
http://steelfarms.net/pipermail/gppa-discussion/2007-May/thread.html

But this does not work:
http://steelfarms.net/pipermail/gppa-discussion/{:longyear}-{:longmonth}/thread.html

Is this a bug? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Perhaps, this is because of may, while the site wants May. You can use the following URL for this task:

http://steelfarms.net/pipermail/gppa-discussion/{:#LongMonths:January,February,March,April,May,June,July,August,September,October,November,December}{:longyear}-{:longmonth}/thread.html

Best regards,

Oops. Never mind!

It seems that adding the macro terms, with the hyphen between, caused a return and/or new line to be inserted. Once I put the URL with macros on a single line, the download worked perfectly.

OK. Good.
