|For whatever ungodly reason, the news.yc web server doesn't terminate header lines properly when sending a response, which happens to break any HTTP client that actually follows the RFC. Please see RFC 2616 section 3.7.1 and use \r\n as God intended.|
This flexibility regarding
line breaks applies only to text media in the entity-body; a bare CR
or LF MUST NOT be substituted for CRLF within any of the HTTP control
structures (such as header fields and multipart boundaries).
