None, as I'm not talking about rendering/displaying incoming messages. And
as Roundcube is almost perfect in this regard, this is one of a major number
of reasons why I'm using it.

I'm talking about formatting messages upon composing/quoting instead.

> so what is your exactly problem

The last time I tried to point to a problem with regards to body formatting
upon composing/replying in this list, I got just one response: "Sorry, I'll
not read this, I'm also a little bit tired about this." (May 10th, 2013)

So I decided not to bother the devs anymore with these issues. Code
formatting issues seem to be more important (at least they deserved 18
responses from the devs, not counting responses from non-devs), even one
white space more or less is of importance apparently (although the relevance
to the user is not even close to zero, but exactly zero).

So be it. I have to accept that, and just sit and wait.

As I have been the maintainer of a MUA (DOS/16) myself, you can trust me
that I'm more than aware of that.
