How to get rid of stationary bug that cause people replying to have to type shift-return for line endings.

Dear Experts,

I've designed a .htm stationary for a company. As I'm a webdevelopment kinda guy, I probably overlooked much things, and even took the wrong approach. I just a htm file and put it in the stationary folder along with the required images.

Well, when using that on new emails, all goes well.

However, when having received a email using this template and wanting to reply to it, people using Outlook (not OE) have to type shift-return to get a simple line ending.

From web development I destilled this would be because shift-enter insert an <br/> and enter inserts </p><p> like it would in contenteditable objects.

Which approach do I have to get rid of this difference?

Kind regards,

Try going (in Outlook) to TOOLS->OPTIONS->MAIL FORMAT->STATIONERY PICKER->NEW and choosing the option to "Use this file as a template" (using your file) and creating the stationery that way and see if the same problem still occurs when the email is sent to an Outlook Express user.
