The current [@ ... @] blockquote markup
That's good for code, but not good for copied & pasted bits of normal text.
I'd like to suggest the addition of an extra escape sequence that
Currently, pasted text usually requires some re-formatting so that it looks as desired, and that tends to confuse naive authors.
The (:linebreaks:) directive works almost as desired but does not suppress markup interpretation. --Henning June 13, 2006, at 10:26 AM
(I have moved Pico's idea for a more powerful, universal escape sequence to the separate PITS 00773 because its greater scope seemed to justify that. The basic philosophy of both PITS is the same, though! --Henning July 05, 2006, at 11:35 AM)
