I just tried to answer this ServerFault question and wanted to paste a quote from the homepage of Webmin, the software I was recommending. The exact text I wanted to quote was:

See the standard modules page for a list of all the functions built into Webmin, or check out the screenshots.

Wow, that was even weirder here in meta, where I was trying to place that between two existing HRs. I think I'll just use the HTML for blockquote for now, but why did the blockquote button do that?

EDIT: I'm on Chrome 6.0.472.63 on Mac OS X 10.5.8
