...everytime I create a message I lose formatting and get things like "ampersanded" strings representing things like apostrophes etc.

So here's a multi-line message to which I'm going to reply, then edit the reply just to see if formatting NOW works since I changed from what-you-see-is-what-you-get to "standard editor with controls" mode.

One more line just for the heck of it, also with an "apostrophe" or two...

So okay, here's a multi-line reply with a small quoted section from the original post. The quoted part looks exactly as it should to me as I'm adding this reply text.

And here's a separate line just to see of those breaks are there, too.

Finally, here's a "quick reply" reply that also carries across multiple lines and includes a line break or two to see if all is now well.

This is that line-breaked line.

[Note - all was well with that reply reply - now here's an editted version of that reply reply to see if it is broken now. If not, then the correct message entry setting has been found as noted in the original post]
