I added "visual citation markers" for such cases in
visual-indent-mode. I have tried it with gmail (which I edit in Emacs
sometimes though I use the web interface to gmail), but I do not know
how it works otherwise.

The idea is that it should show "visual citation markers" looking a
little bit different than the normal ones, but similar, when
visual-line-mode has wrapped a line.

If someone wants to try the code is currently in wrap-to-fill.el in
nXhtml. Suggestions are of cause welcome.
