With the risk of sounding stupid, how do you highlight other people's posts if you are quoting them?

Like, making their type bold? Or actual highlighting?

OK...I just did it. I went to your post and pressed QUOTE on the upper right hand corner. Then be sure to go to the very end of the quote and post your response AFTER the last [/quote] otherwise your response will be in the middle of the other person's post. I did that quite a few times  :D You should see how long it took me to figure that one out ! Then when you are done responding...you press post at the bottom as usual.

I hope that helps. Now that is for quoting the entire post. If I just want to note part of it , I just highlight it in red. Above this box is the change color function.  I highlight the sentence, then go to change color , pick you color and press. Done! Then at that point just press post. 

I hope I did not confuse you more. SG

Yes thank you guys I feel like an idiot now.  It's just that I can be quite lazy in learning new functions on my computer. :)
