    Whitespace preservation

    How does one preserve whitespace created in off-line material from being eaten by this posting system?

    Possibly the answer may be that cutting and pasting to 'Quick reply' saves whitespace, and that 'Go advanced' does not.

    So much for that theory. That was originally three lines in Leafpad. This was originally three lines in 'Reply to thread'.

    I've just referred back to earlier clipboard-daemon posts. That might solve my problem, but why is this such an inconsistent phenomenon? The daemon is not in stable or testing repos. Composed in four lines.

    That wasn't cut and paste. Reply to thread is not WYSIWYG. WYS is all run together in a horrible way. Three lines originally.

    Here's another experiment.
    Whitelisting http://knoppix.net on NoScript.
    Maybe there's some interaction there.
    Four lines, pasting from Leafpad.

    The idea to see if NoScripts might have an effect
    is courtesy Ladislav Bodnar of DistroWatch.
    He is critical of some of the malware-protection programs,
    as being too agressive.

    Here's a bonus I wasn't expecting:
    Now my post count is increasing on a 1:1 basis.
    I wondered how that worked.

    It would be more accurate to state that Ladislav
    is critical of indiscriminate use of malware-protection programs,
    rather than critical of the way they work.
