I'm a relatively new registered user, and I wondered, how do I get the post that I want to reply to, to appear in a greyed out box (above MY reply/comment) so that people can tell which comment I am replying to? I've looked around on the composition page, and don't see anything that might do that. I have considered that it might be one of the options in the buttons directly above the smilies, I have been thinking that it might be the quote button, but I don't see any way to choose exactly which quote that you want to put in the greyed out box. Plus, I THINK that I've seen the inclusion of more than one greyed out comment box,
because your reply can be applied to more than one comment.
So, if one of you more experienced users can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. :?: :mrgreen:

One little caveat. You cna only get two levels of boxing - any more than that causes the software to barf and not post - then you get the fun of editing the html to reduce the box level. Joy :twisted:

I like that limitation, because we don't posts with quote-levels ad naseum. And if it is something that's important to the question at hand you need to expend some effort to include it. :)
