When quoting published sources, especially large sections, it is best to use the "quote" BBCODE tags.

The following comes from the BBCODE guide located HERE (and incidentally is not in quote tags b/c BBCODE had to be disabled to display the post).

Quoting text in replies
There are two ways you can quote text: with a reference or without.
When you utilise the Quote function to reply to a post on the board you should notice that the post text is added to the message window enclosed in a [quote=""][/quote] block. This method allows you to quote with a reference to a person or whatever else you choose to put. For example, to quote a piece of text Mr. Blobby wrote, you would enter:

[quote="Mr. Blobby"]The text Mr. Blobby wrote would go here[/quote]

The resulting output will automatically add: Mr. Blobby wrote: before the actual text. Remember that you must include the quotation marks "" around the name you are quoting -- they are not optional.
The second method allows you to blindly quote something. To utilise this enclose the text in [quote][/quote] tags. When you view the message it will simply show: Quote: before the text itself.

Of course, the source should be credited and if possible instructions on how or where to find it should be included.
