    I was wondering how you quote only a sentence or paragraph.
    each time I try to quote, I end up getting the whole post in there.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>It always gives you the whole message that you're quoting to start with. You have to manually delete the parts you don't want to quote.

    To quote somebody manualy you start the quote off with a " <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>" and when your done with it you end it by putting a "<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>".

    To bold something you start with a "" and end the bold with a "".

    When deleting parts in a quote make sure to delete both "" and "" or else you get left over slop on your quote.

    That was too funny, I tried to show him the quote labels and bold labels but couldn't cause it bolded and quoted me saying it. lol ... It turned out to be crap. lol

    When your quoting someone go down towards the bottom of the page and see a 2nd page of everyones replies so you can refer to that when single quoting.

    When you hit that quote reply it automaticly sets you off with both sets of quote and bold(beginning and ending). So make sure to kick out the first labeling block for the bold to avoid silly mistakes.

    And when you edit something twice you can also delete the sentence that says have have edited it. Like for instance that took me 3 edits and on the 3rd I scrolled down and erased the 2 that said I had edited it. lol ...
