BBQuote is a simple commodity to use on forums for easier quoting of text. It
allows you to select your section of text and copy it to the clipboard then
paste it into the editor with BB code quote tags surrounding it.

I found that replying to forums was awkward on common Amiga sites. And more so
PMs. Sometimes having a dedicated quote window but one that was limited by the
browser string buffer where it wouldn't paste any text at all if it was over the
limit. To circumvent this I assigned some quote codes using FKey. And even
though I had cut the quote window out it was still a bit of key pressing. So I
decided to map the whole pasting process onto one key that would paste the
clipboard text contents wrapped in quote codes all ready to go. :-)
