When someone answers a question, I often find I need to reply to the answer. When I attempt to cite the answer, Stack Overflow does not honor some of the formatting (such as CR/LFs entered with SHIFT-ENTER). See, for example, iPhone: NSFileManager/NSDirectoryEnumerator Crash?.
The mini-help below the text box does not offer assisstance, and there is no link to the full help. The FAQ is also missing an explanation.
In general, how does one format a reply? In particular, How does one preserve CR/LF?
