Does RT have some sort of markup language?

I’ve noticed that RT destroys indentation when I submit tickets. We do a
lot of Python programming, so preserving indentation is important in many
instances. I poked around the RT wiki a bit but didn’t see any sort of
markup. We naively tried

but that didn’t seem to work.

Documentation pointers greatly appreciated.

I don’t see that. What I see is that RT loses indentation when looking
at a ticket in the Web view, but if I use the “show the original text”
link (“[Download]” or some such), I get the original text, indentation
and all. It’s only the Web interface that destroys indentation, in my
experience.

Note also that this is controlled by CSS these days. So it would be
pretty easy to flip it to whitespace-preserving.

RT does not actually destroy the indentation – it’s just the way
messages are shown in the history display: HTML does not care about
whitespace. If you click on ‘[Show]’ link next to a comment it will
take you to attachment view where you can see all your indentation
preserved.

You can probably modify HTML to place

 tags around the comments
view.
