OK, first, thanks for your help!

I don't have `message-header-separator'.
But I do have `mail-header-separator' which
seems similar in purpose and effect

    Its value is "---"
    Original value was 
    "--text follows this line--"

Maybe this is why why the face
`message-separator' won't affect it?

But if so, then again what *does* it affect?

Is there a subtle difference between "mail" and
"message"? What is the correct
Emacs-world terminology?

I use the Message mode for Gmane, Usenet *and*
mail. This is how I open/compose a new, blank

(defun new-message (&optional force)
  (interactive "P")
  (message (format "%s" force))
  (if (or (not (eq major-mode 'message-mode)) force)
        (unless (gnus-alive-p) (gnus))
        (gnus-post-news 'post "") )
    (message "Did nothing. Use C-u to force.") )) ; [1]
