Yea, me, well, it's a macbook pro... does yours use OS X? Do you press the quote button on the post you want to quote? What happens?

Do all the os and Safari uploads/upgrades you can manage. My latest wrinkle. The latest and greatest *****! email program doesn't work very well in Safari, but works like a champ in Firefox. Go figure. In any event, you can't do any of the fancy thingies here using Safari without having javascript enabled. If that doesn't work you can always try Firefox for your browser, both browsers were crashing repeatedly until I did all of the free Mac software upgrades.

Can you use the quote option just for one sentence out of a group?? It works if I high light all..... but it does not if I only highlight parts of it...

I usually do the preview to see how it looks, here I cut and pasted [/QUOTE] from it.... and pasted it behind group?? The part that I left ends up below the 'quoted' section. If I wanted to have both parts quoted, could simply cut and paste start and end 'quote' commands.

You might just try the multi-quote feature, though I've never been able to get it to work on the toolbar here, you can do it manually, cutting and pasting the start and end 'quote' commands in the proper places.

I use the quote feature... To just quote a sentence, I highlight only what I don't want and press delete... Sometimes that is a multistep process and a little tedious, but it works...

Make sense?
