Hi,
In my mail application, I am using blockquote for mails in html as follows:


header="<br><br><br><blockquote style=\"PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 0px; BORDER-LEFT: #0000ff 2px solid\">
-----Original Message-----\n";
req.setAttribute("body", header +cleanHtml.getContent() + "</blockquote>");

A left border will appear in the original message. But if I want to introduce some text or new line in this original text,
and press enter, the left border should not be dispalyed for the new line.
You can try this as it is available in Gmail when u reply to a mail in html content
I know it is something with css, but can't get the idea. Can anyone help me on how to do this.


Thanks,
Shanmugavel.

Did you try to close the tag where you do not want the line?
