I work in a company that has a lot of mailing lists, and we have an unwritten rule about always quoting text we are talking about.

What I can't seem to find in ZD 7.1.2 is an easy way to copy a block of text from a responded-to email, and mark it up with > or | marks in my response.

I had a look in the Zimlet catalog, but there doesn't seem to be anything that allows you to do this.

What I would ideally like to do is:


  1. Copy text from the email body
  2. Paste it at the top of the email.
  3. Select the text.
  4. Click a button in the edit window (available in either HTML or Text modes) that puts > or | symbols at the beginning of each line.


An alternative to the last step is to have a context menu item that says "Paste Text as Quote"

Does anyone know of any Zimlets that might allow you to do this, or other ways of providing this functionality?

Cheers
