how to quote the others
 
I want to quote some of the other's word separately, but I just can quote it as a whole, I saw many people doing it, but I don't know how.
Anyone give me a clue?

I manually add the closing [/QUOTE] and the opening [QUOTE=dspjm;4829314] in the middle. I think it's not possible to do it automatically. For example:

[QUOTE=dspjm;4829314]I want to quote some of the other's word separately, but I just can quote it as a whole,[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=dspjm;4829314]I saw many people doing it, but I don't know how.

If your next question is "How to show tags literally as in your example?" the answer is by using the [NOPARSE][/NOPARSE] pair of tags! ;)

When you click to quote from the post you are reading, just delete the content that you don't want to cite.

Alternatively, copy the bit of text you wish to quote, paste it into the reply window, highlight it, and click the "Quote" icon in the top of the reply window (that's the one that looks like a voice bubble from a cartoon).
