Design issue Select-reply doesn't handle '[plain]' tags

If you select some text which has [plain] and click 'reply' or 'quote' on the on-hover element. I suspect it is something of a design issue, as the submitted HTML has no indicator of the plain tag.

This resulting in how you reply to something changing the contents of the quoted text.

In theory we could try to add a <span> or something to mark this up, but that will potentially lead to invalid HTML in various cases. Indeed, it's certainly possible that changing this may potentially do unexpected things (if people copy from the plain area and we maintain the markup).

As this is very much an edge case and there isn't really a clear solution, I don't think we'll make any change for this.
