Paste formatted text into JIRA comment


I would like to be able to paste formatted text (eg: from an email) into a comment against a JIRA issue, but it looses all of it's formatting.  I don't want to have to go through the text and manually convert it to the JIRA markup.

BTW- I have Wiki Style Renderer turned on

I'd like to believe in it too
