As you point out, web browsers ought to handle text/plain with all of its
allowed controls properly. I've just never seen a browser that does. I
agree that formfeeds in text/plain is a browser issue, not one of HTML.
Perhaps you have pointed us to the solution of our discussion: directing
that features of non-HTML specific MIME types be implemented more
thoroughly by browser authors.
