Replying with a quote with a quote

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.
 
What? We can't have those long long quoted posts like we used to in PF 2?

Use [] Instead Of <>
