Why is it that the Format menu (menu bar or contextual) displays the Alignment sub-menu grayed out in html mode? It apparently can only be used in Rich Text mode. I do most of my writing in html mode, but some html commands that I seldom use are hard to remember. I don't see any particular reason why selected text can't be formatted in html mode just as block quotes, etc. are. Am I missing something or doing something wrong?
(My workaround is to open a new post, switch to Rich text mode, copy the html code, then close that post without saving, and paste into the post being written/edited. That works, but it's a real pain.)
