Hey Z - Is there any way you could make it so that when you're quoting another post, your own text doesn't appear smaller? Maybe you could just instruct me in the proper HTML. I tried using the [big] tag, but it looked, well, big. Of course, if no one else is bothered by the small text, I take all this back.

I dunno if there's an auto-quoting thing that adds people's entire posts (sig and all) when you try to reply, but it's kind of annoying. To me anyway. (I don't matter.) Yeah, I know. Anyway, it's just kinda "eh", I guess. Me, I'm sticking with an easy C&P in italics, cuz I'm OLD SCHOOL.

I guess kicking it VM style is antiquated rather than classic.

I think I fixed this. I added a font size = -1 at the end of the quote code. Let me know if it looks funky.

Hmm... I tested on pieman and DEAN in the test folder and it worked after I included a closing font tag at the top of my header ('twas missing), but it didn't work here until I placed a closing font tag before the end of your quote. Interesting.
