Replying to a html mail quotes the html source in the new mail. This is not usable at all.
Problem is the same as the already reproted problem with forwarding a html mail.

I suspect that the new KMMessage and KMMessagePart implementations have
fixed this by coincidence. You can try the patch at
http://www.staikos.on.ca/~staikos/kmmsg/ against the latest cvs code if you
like. I don't use HTML email anywhere but if you forward one to firstname.lastname@example.org
I can test the patch myself too.
At least with the current CVS version if you select the text of the message
before hitting reply the html formatting is stripped out.
