I like to include extra blanklines to indicate a change of topic, to make my posts easier to read. But these blanklines are removed when I post.

Also, I copied and pasted a quote that had indentation, and the indentation was removed, making the quote harder to read.

Can anybody advise me on indentation and blanklines?

I'm not positive I know what you mean but you can do it like this. Using underscores.

I am not quite sure what you are talking about either but why don't you just use the rich text? Italics are good for quotes and Bold is good for seperating topics. You also have underlines to play with as well.

He's talking about only being able to put one space between paragraphs in forum posts. I've noticed this as well.

You can use underlines to get more spaces like phantom said, but it looks somewhat sloppy.
