New quote format seems to confuse some folks
I'm seeing the occasional post in which the poster's text is inline with the quoted text. Is this perhaps a side-effect of the new quote format in this new UI I am noticing? I can see how easy it would be for people not to realize where they need to put the cursor for their text.

Perhaps if the quoted text had a thicker border that was visible on all sides? Perhaps if the box surrounding the quoted text also showed the expected "<so-and-so> said ->" at the top in its own frame? Perhaps then users would realize where quoted text ends and theirs should begin?

Or, perhaps more distinct colors would help? Although, perhaps that's controlled by themes...

Perhaps this is a non-issue and I'm just too dense to see the other way to handle this?

Perhaps this is just caused by my use of Chrome?
