How do you copy a quote onto your own post? Just wondering.

There are a couple ways.. I usually highlight/copy and then paste what I want to quote in a response then put quote tags on each side..

I don't know how I found this on the site, but here is a guide for BBCode.

http://www.bois-blanc.com/phpBB2/faq.php?mode=bbcode

Scroll down beyond the introduction and you will find a lot of good stuff. There is a Quoting and outputing fixed-width text section. In that section is listed "Quoting text in Replies". [Or at the top of the guide you will find the hyperlinks so you can jump to the subject you want.]

I would recommend that everyone print out this entire guide for reference.
