I'm not very tech-savvy. The people here are very eloquent and I'd like to quote them in my replies, but I can't figure out how to do it!

Oh, how obvious! Thanks Kevin. This might be obvious too, but I'm going to ask it anyway. How to I quote just a part of what someone has written?

Like that? That which is between the quote and the /quote tag is editable. Quote it, then delete what you don't want. I usually use three periods on a line to indicate that I snipped material out.

Also, if you hit the Quote button, then press the browser's back button, the press another post's Quote button, it will put the second post in, too (see below). You may need to re-arrange the end quote tag, sometimes the 2nd one ends up after the first one, so it becomes a quote within a quote...
