If I try to quote something from e.g. Wikipedia into a Gmail mail I'm writing, it will also copy the formatting, including blue links such as , , etc. for references.
When I then try to end the quote and start writing normally again, my text is now of a smaller font, with blue color, and aligned towards the top.
My question is simply, how do I revert to the normal formatting, so I can continue typing? I have to copy/paste the quoted text (e.g. the text from Wikipedia) into e.g. gvim just to remove formatting, and then copy/paste it into Gmail. This is obviously extremely inconvenient, and also removes any formatting altogether, not just from when I want to start writing myself, after the quote.
