    Every time I've asked this in an existing thread, I've never gotten an answer, so forgive me for starting a new thread in order to ask again. I simply cannot figure out how to quote someone with the standard yellow box. I can copy/paste the quote, sure, but nothing I do makes it appear in a yellow box like everyone else. I've tried the Quote icon and the Paragraph icon and the Link icon and the Code icon, both before and after pasting the quote in the comment box. I've highlighted the quote while doing so, and not highlighted it. I've done everything I can think of. What am I doing wrong? :(

    You use the button with this symbol ". However, if your web browser is Internet Explorer, it doesn't work. If you use Firefox it works.

    Copy-paste the bit of text you want into the "Have your say" box.

    Click at the end of the text and enter a new paragraph or two.

    Click anywhere inside the paragraph you are quoting

    Click the quote box ...

    smiddy: My excuse is old age

    isn't that like, you know, ageist?

    A casual ageism that perpetuates the stereotype of older people
