Typepad editor blockquote bug

Writing this up to support a bug report, please excuse the technical intrusion.

When I use the blockquote function in the Typepad editor, there's a sequence of steps that causes me to lose text out of the editor.

A series of screen captures follows. The general pattern runs like this:

  • create three paragraphs
  • select the second paragraph, and blockquote it; the third paragraph blockquotes as well
  • switch to HTML view to confirm that the blockquote includes two paragraphs
  • switch back to rich text
  • reselect the second paragraph, and unblockquote it; nothing seems to happen
  • switch to HTML view; the second and third paragraphs are not there
  • reswitch to rich text, the second and third paragraphs disappear

I'm using Chrome 21 on MacOS 10.5.8; the same problem happens on Safari on the same machine.
