    I'm working on changing the styling and in conversation_reply_messagetext, there's a section that places {xen:raw $message.messageHtml} into a block. Where is the template for that so I can adjust the styling on it? I can't seem to find it

    The email templates are available in debug mode only: admin.php?email-templates/

    Yes I know, I've already modified some, but I can't find which template generates the content of the post in the conversation reply template

    <td width="100%" style="font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif; font-size: 11pt; line-height: 1.4">
            {xen:raw $message.messageHtml}
    Where or how does $message.messageHtml get constructed in conversation_reply_messagetext?

    I'm not really sure what you're asking.

    It is passed to the template from the PHP file/code.

    If there is a quote though, it has styling and such.

    In those cases, the contents of $message.messageHtml can look like
    <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" style="
                background-color: #FFF4E5;
                border: 1px solid #F9D9B0;
                border-radius: 5px;
                margin: 1em 86px 1em 0">
    <td style="
                    background-color: #F9D9B0;
                    border: 1px solid #F9D9B0;
                    border-bottom-color: #F9BC6D;
                    border-radius: 4px;
                    font-size: 11px;
                    font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
                    line-height: 1.4;
                    padding: 3px 8px;
                    margin: 0;
                    color: #141414">[Quoted User Name]
    <td style="
                    font-size: 9pt;
                    font-style: italic;
                    font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif;
                    line-height: 1.4;
                    padding: 10px;
                    margin: 0">[Quoted Message Text]
    [Normal Message Text]

    I want to change the styling on the quote in this case, and I can't find where that markup comes from

    Anyone who's worked with email templates know where I can find the template that controls the styling of quotes?

    Good to know I wasn't the only one this is driving crazy.
