To preserve formatting you can wrap text in CODE tags, like this:
Here is some text.

This is more indented.
And out a level.
Or instead of preserving formatting, you can create formatting with INDENT tags, like this:
Just quote this message in a new message then view the tags in your edit box.
These tags and more have toolbar icons for them, when you click the "Advanced Edit" button.
Beware that the indent tag adds extra blank lines that you may need to mess with to get it the way you want. After the "end indent" tag, you may need to add a couple of blank lines.
