    And rendering a quotation in italics instead of the conventional quotation marks is progress because . . .?

    <i>Lets see if i got this right<i/>

    MODERATOR: It should be /i, not i/ ... that's why all these threads are italicized...

    Neil,

    Simply makes it easier to differentiate between the quoted text and the posters own text.

    Ivanhoe uses quoted text a lot and I have given up trying to read his posts with the shambles that they become going back and forth from quote to text back to quote and back to text etc ....

    But be my guest to ignore this thread and do it the usual way.

    We're too old, Neal. Just be happy someone wants to differentiate quotations this day and age. Considerate it a blessing.

    Well, I might, Bryce, but now everything I write on this thread looks like italics to me and I'm not quoting anyone.

    Barry,

    I am 42, I struggle with this computer stuff !!

    I only posted this stuff because it seemed like it might help make sense of some peoples posting style when the forum doesn't offer simple options with text type/color/size/smileys etc .......

    Hey, this looks like fun! Bryce, can you show me how to change the font into Cyrillic or Tagalog at the end of a message so I can post something ultra-controversial and everyone who hits back will look like they are drunk?

    EE,

    It clearly works after the i as well ... maybe works to good.

    Sorry if I messed this thread up ..... perhaps what seemed like a good idea was not so much !!

    Dooooh !!
