How do you quote text in a comment?

    I've noticed that many comments and forum entries quote text from a previous comment that appears in a box of sorts, with the new text outside the box. Sometimes this is done at more than one level, so that there are boxes inside boxes.

    I have tried using the "quote/reply" option, but I cannot manage to separate the quoted text from my own. Could somebody please explain how to do this?

    Thanks.

      I have clicked "quote/reply" button.  Your answer showed up in quote tags, and I'm writing my answer below it.  Basically by adding my comments out of the quote tags puts my message below (or try above) , and yours as quote.  I hope this helps.

        I'm trying it now! It it works, thanks, and I wonder why it didn't work last time. If it didn't work, I'm still stymied!
