Replying with a quote with a quote

  1. Mar 19, 2003 #1
    I noticed that when I use the "reply with quote" feature, and the post that I want to quote already quotes in it, those 2nd-level quotes just disappear when I go to type my reply. It would be great if nested quotes would appear. Thanks.

    You Can , Just Forget About The Quote Button At The Top , And Wrote The Quote Tags By Yourself .
    Use [] Instead Of <>

    <quote>

    Actually, to make them nested, you need another <quote> tag at the top, and get rid of the tag at the top of the second quote, as follows:

    <quote>
