    I like them too... but I miss the contrasting background color.

    Well I think that they are cool.

    I also noticed that My CP was changed to My PF.

    wow, and the "rules" section just turned into the Dilbert homepage!

    O... wait. I just pressed the wrong tab on my browser. Nevermind.:biggrin::tongue2:

    Anyway, good job on the changes. Variety's always nice.

    The only thing is that when there is multiple quotes in the middle of text, it is harder to pick out what part is the quote and what isn't.

    Although I think the design is great, there still should be some color difference.

    Yeah, I agree. The novelty wore off really fast when I had to strain to see what is and what is not quoted.

    I suggest putting the whole thing in a box, so it's easier to discern.

    I think there needs to be some sort of contrast there.

    It seems that the quoted text is also forced to be italicized....
    which hides the emphasis implied by italics in the original text.

    It was made italic beforehand as far as I remember.

    For the purposes of this forum, I really don't think the new quote format works. Can we get to choose which to display (old or new) -- I thought I'd switch the themes to see if it's available on the other one but the listbox at the end of the page is no longer available.

    Yes, I think you are correct.

    ...however, note Pervect's post, #13, (recorded by archive.org)
    http://web.archive.org/web/20060313224027/www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=113730

    The quoted text from a post is italicized.
    However, the QUOTE /QUOTE (presumably manually-constructed) isn't.


    I guess one lesson in this
    is that one should use bold, underline, or color or all three for emphasis.

    (Side note: order of operations matter
    all three vs all three)

    I'll play with a little contrast. Stay tuned.
     
  18. Mar 7, 2008 #17
    I'm not a huge fan...:cry:

    The contrast is my problem, I cannot differentiate between different quotes. I guess I'll have to get used to it though. :smile:

    ok I added a tiny bit of contrast.
