My understanding of how block quote formatting works is that a
> at the start of a paragraph quotes the whole paragraph but allows the paragraph text to wrap to fit the available space. A
> on each line prevents the paragraph from rewrapping, preserving what is on each original line.
I edited a post, replacing some lengthy German messages with the Google Translate version: How to find the printer url on linux (debian)?.
I tried preserving the individual lines with a

Is there a secret to preserving lines within block quotes? Any chance that the problem relates to the Linux EOL vs. Windows EOL?
