Is there a way to fix nested quotes?

Patrick - sometimes I like to include my original comment when I respond to someone else's comment, so that there is some context for what they wrote. But if I select all the text and hit the "quote" button, it formats it all in the same box, as if it had all been written by the same person. In most other internet forums, it would automatically attribute each quote to the person who wrote it. That doesn't seem to work here.

True, that is a bug.

OK, I'll work on it tonight and see if I can fix it.

If anyone else is fluent in Javascript and wants to take a crack at fixing it, just "view source" of any page with comments and you'll see that code. Search for "function addquote".

I think I've fixed it. Please let me know if not.

Javascript is a bitch.
