as a matter of fact i do experience this and dont show html. Despite
that if i copy text or even from the ´fancy´ header it gets pasted as
html everywhere. Very anoying. You copy one plain text word and get a
full html page with html and body tag etc in your clipboard...

I would love to see it fixed or know where to configure it. It must´ve
been introduced in one of the last bugfix releases.
