I like the idea but it would, in my opinion, be better if the box was resizeable (sorry but you know that I don't want to make it too easy for you :twisted: ) There are times when it is easier to read what is being quoted if you can see all of it.

I had thought of that David, but it may prove problematic where there are several nested quotes. eg

but I'll keep on swearing looking at the code to see if I can make it work successfully.

Swearing doesn't solve anything ... but GDI, it certainly relieves the tension and as such IS beneficial.
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

I have setup something for you. I have added the Readmore.js Jquery plugin.

I could PM you the package if you are interested. Let me know. :)

Done, have fun. :)

May I suggest to change the ext name to Read more quote or simply Read more?
