Didn't there use to be a formatting stripping button?

Doh! I forgot about that. 'Coz it is indicated by an eraser icon.

When I use it, it looks like it isn't working--it resizes everything to a tiny font, and converts all quotes to indents. Inspecting the HTML, it looks like it's done the right thing. I'll have to test it some to decide whether I trust it.

Fixing that tool to not change what's displayed so much would be perfect.
