AH, well ok. That first post looked like crap. I added 8 more lines and now insert <p> and <br> to preserve formatting of the text, a bit at least. I suppose I’ll make a post editor before I get back to the language.
Update: When I added HTML support I had to get rid of the “one newline turns into a <br>” rule. I had to fix all the existing entries. There is a lesson in there somewhere.
