x-face is a 1-bit black&white bitmap format, ascii coded, which came
with the X11 window system. You can find one (my) in the header of
this posting.

Gnus shows it in the article buffer between From: and the
sendername/-email. 

If there is a ``Face'' (colored bitmap) in the header of the email or
news, gnus uses this to show in the article buffer at the same place. 

My installation shows Face-images in the article buffer, but no
x-faces. As emacs/gnus uses external programs (uncompface and
icon2pbm), there might be the problem. But I cant locate it. The
programs are installed on my machine.

Well, that's the newest binary for MS windows, I've found. I've tried
to compile the current CVS version with Visual Studio 2005, but failed
due compiler errors. At the moment I don't have time to solve this, so
I'm glad, if you could point me to the newest binary package.

Cheers,
Rudiger
