[jdev] Messages and formatting

I am looking into an issue where client A supports formatting of  
text, but client B does not. While client B will quite happily accept  
the text it will not display any formatting details specified by the  
sender. Ideally the formatting support would be disabled in client A  
for the session, if client B does not support formatting. Is this  
achievable with the jabber protocol?

I can imagine the other situation which would also need supporting  
where the user of client B is also logged in elsewhere, but with a  
client of different capabilities, which would seem to further  
complicate things.

Any insight would be appreciated.
