Message Editor question

Hia,

this is a very low priority request, but I am slightly annoyed by the behaviour of the [ CODE ] tags in the message editor. They behave assymetric in the sense that the opening tag is introducing an empty line, and the closing tag is not, and can't be convinced to do otherwise. I know I am picky here *blush*, and its not a big thing, but if this is easy to fix for one of you guys, my eyes would appreciate :-)

I don't mind which way its getting fixed, although removing the initial empty line would be space saving and more flexible.

Example:

Code:
----------- before tags -------------
[ CODE ]  foreach $i ( @array )
  {
    print "$i\n";
  }


[ /CODE ]
----------- after tags --------------

results in

----------- before tags -------------
Code:
  foreach $i ( @array )
  {
    print "$i\n";
  }

----------- after tags --------------

Thanks, (and feel free to ignore if that is out of scope!), Andre.

PS.: also, whenever I press 'preview', the line after the closing code tag is appended to the line where that closing code tag lives on.
