Replies can be done two ways:

1) Click on the "Reply" link on the right side of the post to copy the entire post into the quote box, then type your reply.

2) Highlight the portion of the text that you want to quote and click "Reply" next to the highlighted text. This will create a quote box in your reply window.

For the first few months that I was on/posted on the forum, I didn't realize the "reply" feature was built in. So I would hand type in the BB code to achieve the same results (but in a much more laborious manner). I was so surprised that so many forum members knew html code and used it so frequently. :p But then I was so happy and liberated when I discovered that this feature was automatic.

:). The font and color makes it a little hard to notice the reply link, I don't think you're alone...
