Placing the comments of the person you are replying to in quote marks or in Bold may get the job done, but really it is not common style. At least not to my FR eyes.

But isn't this much more aesthetically pleasing?

"Lately there seems to be some slippage of what has been for years the common style for replying to posts. In the interest of FR Stylebook maintenance, here is what has been proper style on replying to comments in a thread."

Hear Hear!

However, I do not expect anything to change. ;)

"Those using quotes perhaps don't know html but it is really easy. FR is where many people learned html."

Quote the person you are replying to with italics (if you are replying to someone specifically and what they said).

That has always been SOP for my responses to other posts. It makes things very readable.

1. Quote the person you are replying to with italics (if you are replying to someone specifically and what they said).
2. Seperate with a paragraph mark.
3. Show your reply in regular text.

"Separate" is spelled wrong.

Those using quotes perhaps don't know html but it is really easy. FR is where many people learned html. Somewhere on here is an html sandbox (perhaps someone can offer up that link).

Here you go,HTML Bootcamp

Fussy Fussy..I just learned how to do the italics thing. Thanks for that info though. I need to exercise my brain and learn new things.

Sheesh! Need we be so militant? I think it a good thing that we have so much "diversity" in the way we Freepers reply.
