locked Blank lines behaving oddly in plain text messages #bug

Mark,

There's still something odd happening to blank lines in plain text messages, at least those I submit by email. For example, compare the presentation of this message with its view source:
https://groups.io/g/beta/message/4847

A blank line disappeared after the paragraph "It goes away when you take it away." And extras appeared after each quote.

And I think the quote bars are being a little greedy about extending into the blank lines above and below them.

I don't remember if this is an old, known, issue or something that has reverted. Mostly because I seldom read my own messages in the group's messages section. They come through fine in my email.

Good catch. I've fixed the missing blank line as well as removing some of the greed around the block quotes.

The code to do all that is a bit messy. I spent the day working to clean it up a bit and add some test cases. Please let me know if you see any other issues.

Thanks,
MarkĀ
