    No. Depends on which editor. "Green bar" in "reply" works fine, will quote all day long; quote latex(?) or one (or more) of the other "Cadillacs" and the content turns back to a pumpkin.

    The highlight-to-quote feature does copy the formatting, which is why it also doesn't copy equations well.

    I remember saying something about the code editor versus the WYSIWTF-editor. The right one keeps formatting (and formulas and everything else) with "Reply" and "+Quote".

    it's a computer,
    i was foolish to expect consistency between odd and even numbered days,
    will try again tomorrow

    Is it preserved across different pages of a thread ? will try that tomorrow too



    thanks guys

    That's an image that you quote here. The image won't change. Here are actual sub- and supscripts for testing purposes:

    normalsubnormalsupnormal

    And one formula: ##normal_{sub}normal^{sup}normal##.

    Pages do not matter.

    That's a reply in the regular editor.
    Don't use WYSIWTF.
