      Thanks TC, this is the first time anyone has confirmed this (I owe 
you some catnip now).  I had the same problem in 2.1.2.  It looks to me 
like the filtering system is close to useless, as it does not do what it 
says it does, and can not be made to do what it should be able to do.

      If a few others would confirm this I'll submit a bug report.  Set up 
a test list and send the same html e-mail twice - once with filtering off, 
once with it on and the two fields empty and conversion off.   The first 
test goes through with html intact, the second does not.

      I've also tried adding everything to the second field - still strips 
the html.  As far as I can tell turning on filtering kills html formatting 
no matter how you configure it past that.  And this is only the beginning 
of the problems I have with the content filtering.
