It should look like this:

HTML Code:
[quote]Quoted text[/quote]

Highlight & copy the text you want.

Then click the 'quote' icon with the curser where you want it to be in the post.

Then paste the text between the two markers.

[QUOTE] Paste Here [/QUOTE ]

Becomes this in the post.

And if you want to be super tricky, add the text "=Bill" (or whichever username you're quoting).

Like so: [quote=Bill]What Bill said![/quote]

And you get:
