When I do a quote I do one of two things...

One way I do it is to use the quote intstead of the reply button.. but I tend to do this if I want to quote all of what someone has said...

If I just want a bit of what they have said I highlight what I want to quote in the posters post.. and then paste it into my reply box...

I then highlight it again and press the button above that has a speech bubble on it.. it will then position the quote commands in the right place.. when I then submit the post it'll be in the quote box.

Oh, cut and paste, and then highlight again.  There is a button in the reply box that looks like a bubble above the colors.  Sorry, Helen, I didn't quite understand at first.
Love this way much better especially to quote different parts at different times in my reply!
