Not really hard at all but a bit of a pain.

If you are responding to only one post you can click on the reply "button" and a reply window will open into which you type your reply.

If you want to post a portion of the post that you are responding to ... Scroll up to the area above your reply and you will see the post that you are responding to. Highlight the text that you want to included with your mouse and then type <Ctrl><c> (for copy) and then move your cursor back to your reply window to the place you want to paste the text. <Ctrl><v> will paste the text.

I like to then preceed the pasted text with "" and follow it up with "". This will cause the pasted text to be in italics, making it stand out from your response.

When I want to paste from several posts within a thread, I open the entire thread in a second browser window so all the posts are available to copy text from using <Ctrl><c>.

Hope that these instructions are sufficent to get you going. If you haev any questions, just ask.
