Highlighting and quoting in a reply

As requested by a member......

To quote someone in your reply.

1) Go to the beginning of the first word you want to save.
2) Hold the left mouse button down.
3) Slide your mouse to the right to highlight everything you want to copy.
4) When you get to the end of the last word.... let go of the left mouse button and press the right button without moving the mouse. Click on COPY.

A demonstration. The part highlighted is what I want to quote in my reply.

5) Go to the reply page and click on what looks like a TV.

You'll see this..... [QUOTE][/QUOTE}

6) Hit the ENTER button and you'll see this....
[QUOTE]
[/QUOTE}

7) Put your cursor just after the first quote, right click, select paste and you'll see this.

[QUOTE]highlight everything you want to copy. When you get to the end of the last word
[/QUOTE}


That's it. When you post your reply or preview your reply you'll see this...

I do it a little different but end up at the same place. I copy/paste the text into my message, highlight it THEN click the TV thingie. It puts the quotes at each end by itself.
