minimal formatting needed for Comments tab

Posted: 1398564602000
Classification: Query
Please consider implementing some minimal formatting capabilities to the Comments tab. Returns (blank lines) and leading spaces or tabs can really help readability. Unfortunately even if you put those in manually, they're stripped when the comment is posted, resulting in an unreadable mess. Case in point, this formatted note (using underscores in place of leading spaces since apparently those are also stripped in board postings):

------
could this be Prissilla's line rather Solomon & Mary?

Levin Townsend abt 1754 - Nov 1797
__John Townsend abt 1720 - Aug 1769 + Tabitha Townsend - 28 Dec 1772
____John Townsend 19 Jun 1685 - abt 1756 + Ansly Marshall - abt 1756
______John Townsend ancestors 08 Jul 1666 - 07 Sep 1736 + Rebecca Porter

Leah Townsend - Sep 1803
------

results in this:

Thanks for considering.
