Can I suggest that we use the html functions here?

The quote function sets off the quoted material that makes notes easier to read. Setting quotes from previous contributions off with quote marks or lines actually take more key strokes and make the notes harder to read since the quoted text looks like all the rest.

<a> function allows one to hide (especially long) urls in a selected piece of text. Just dumping a long url into the midst of the text can distort the screen by making it wider than the computer screen. Select the text (such as “Click Here") and hit the <a> function at the top of the reply screen.

I’ve not used the <img> function, but sobiest seems to have done with good effect.

I’m not sure how, exactly, one would use the @ function. Or why. Perhaps . Not a real email address. If we want to be contacted by email, we would put our email address in our profiles.

I should say that the way I do this is I select and copy text from the note I’m responding to > hit the reply button > in the new screen I hit the quote function. That results in the following:

[quote][/quote]

I click between the two brackets in the center and paste the text there:

[quote]paste quoted text here[/quote]

It has to be easier than pasting text into the beginning of the reply and then putting quote marks around the quoted text.
