I think you should use a Web Browser

since

the only access will be with a web browser

Not exactly, there already existed local nntp2html bridges:

2 MS bridges, 1 for answers and 1 for the rest,



but I recommend Community Forums NNTP bridge



http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/



Current features



* Replaces the MS NNTP Bridge completely

* Unifies the access to scocial and answers forms to a single NNTP

server (no two servers needed!)

* Autologin and Autominimize

* Displays your email address, if you have configured your username

and email (will allow Ctrl-H to work in WLM)

* X-Face support for MVPs, Microsofties and Admins

* Encodes Subject/From only, if non-ASCII characters are present

* MessageId contains a valid domain name

* The message/thread URL of the forum will be submitted in the X-

Comments header, so you can directly go to the web page

* Converts "http(s)" links into html links, if posted in plain/text

* Supports the conversion of html-web-articles into plain/text

articles for your newsreader

* Thunderbird can display the article source code ;)

* Many tracing options to see the newsclients messages/responses

* You can extend the "CommunityForumsNNTPServer.ArticleConverter"

without the LiveID SDK; for compiling the whole source code, you need

to download and install the Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK
