    Sorry for the stupid question. That's quotes from previous posts in your reply.

    Thanks

    There's a button on the lower right that says reply. It'll quote automatically. It's over here --------------->

    Just click on the "Reply" button (in the lower righthand corner) of the post you want to quote.

    Or you can copy the text you want, and put it between the following tags:

    (quote) the stuff you want to quote (/quote).

    Except instead of the parenthesis, use brackets [].

    How do you do it if you want to quote multiple people?

    I usually copy and paste in WOrd then put it here, and that gets annoying.

    Help appreciated.

    forget word. if you are going to do that, do it in notepad - much lighter weight!

    here's what I do...

    ctrl+click on the reply = this opens it up in another window.
    ctrl+a, ctrl+c to select all in the quoted box and copy it.
    close window
    go to another person you want to quote and just click on reply and paste the buffer (the first quote) into the box.

    odd. ctrl+click's work in IE just fine. maybe a shift+click ? these are all left clicks but you can use the right click, then menu option to open in a new window.

    glad this helped.
