I recently sent an email reply through Gmail that included an inline quote from the previous message.
In Gmail, this displays as I'm accustomed to seeing quotes: purple text, vertical bar in the left margin.
The recipient was confused and didn't realize there was a quote. Investigating, I found that the raw text (by using "show original") has nothing to delineate that there is a quote. Is there a way to force Gmail to include a
> to guarantee proper handling of the quote by recipients mail clients?
UPDATE: I continue to have this problem. It appears that the plain text contains no quote information, but there is quote information in the HTML.
