Author/Date Another possible glitch in 1.84

When using XML templates for the Reply form, it doesn't seem to honor the placement. The cursor appears in the To: address field. Then when tabbing to the body text, it just appears at the beginning of the message body. Not something that someone who used the default settings would notice, but for those of us who use traditional style quoting (context then reply), it's a nit.

Indeed, I'm still working out the bugs in the XML formatting. So I'll have a go at getting the cursor field to work as advertised.

<mail.body quote="> ">

I don't know if it's a typo or a glitch in the message posting, but if you mean to use HTML code for less-than, it appears you left out the semilcolon.

I don't know either, because it appeared correctly the first time I viewed the post and then stopped working. Bizarre.

Anyway I corrected the post so that people can see the intended text.
