Quoting Text
I really do dislike the way that the forum quotes text. I guess I'm used to using Eudora and Netscape as my mail client for the last 8 years, and I'm used to quotation text beginning with >.

Check out Google groups for a good example of what I mean. They layout messages well and their quotation works a treat.

I'll just write this out again as a quote:

I really like the simple look of the above, and I don't understand the reason behind the way text is quoted at the moment. Ah well. I guess I can change this in the admin? But it would be nice if this was hard coded in to treat line breaks and what not.

And another thing, can I have a white background to the message window. I've been staring at my monitor for a good 8 hours now, and my eyes really hurt. Green doesn't help.

Ugh. It's been a bad today :-\

Cheers
