That is true.  The whole deal of being able to quote the original message is a bit messy.  Do you make a form on the bottom of each and every message, with a text box pre-loaded with the quoted message?   If so, you increase the html size of each message to at least 2x.  Then the user has to forcefully delete quoted stuff.

Another possible way is to use some javascript and have a button do this for you.  Any other ideas?

I hate the idea of making the messages any bigger than they need to be, but I suppose it is only text... Just that it is so nice and quick now, even over dialups.
