Advogato: Whew. Writing anything in your bio that requires character-precision formatting (ie. <PRE></PRE> tags) is a royal PITA. That being said, I think I now have my PGP public key up there in a format that will be relatively cut-n-pastable (but completely non-machine parsable; WHY does the Advogato backend rip out my very carefully placed carriage returns?).
The odd thing is that the diary entry forms seem to leave formatting alone for the most part (aside from stripping out non-approved HTML tags). I'll have to poke my head into mod_virgule to see what's going on.
