Well, we finally got around to fixing this old problem from our end. The solution involved a new style of quoting, which we - the staff - seem to like a lot (in general). Here it is:
This is our new quote box.

If you don't see a blue box with a darker blue outine, you'll need to click "refresh" or "reload" on your browser.
You'll see something more like the below, normally:

And just to demonstrate that the problem is solved:
Here's a quote.
With a quote inside.
And this text won't be the teeny-tiny stuff that people were complaining about in the linked-to thread.

If you never saw that problem, you still get the benefits of a nifty new quote box! And now folks like beskeptigal won't have to do the extra work of explicitly setting the text back to its larger size after a quote.

Well, no matter how many times I refresh, I don't see the box. Odd...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Me, too. Even though in previous (secret) tries, Dave it did work. Using:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3

ETA: But Kil's text is black, and mine blue. Odd.

And the text within the quotes should be black.

Right. So I'm telling you that I see the difference in color. But there's no box. This is unlike the earlier test-runs.

I wonder if clearing the browser cache might help.

I gave it a shot, but nothing's changed.

I see the boxes themselves just fine. I am usng the latest version of Firefox. However, as I preview this reply, the texts of both Kil's replied-to post and my reply are in same box. His text is black, and indented, mine is dark blue, unindented.

Once everyone can see it correctly, I think it'll be a vast improvement. Thanks for trying!

Edit: The box worked right once I posted, though the preview was as I described above.

Okay, this same reply works perfectly in preview, now.

Edit: And when posted. This sure improves the sense of complex interactions.

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

Works for me....
