You're welcome. It worked for me in a previous job.

And as you may note, I'm using Gmail as well. No client or anything,
just the normal web interface.

There's a Lab setting you can enable to automatically quote the text
you highlight and leave the cursor at the bottom. I do use this, but
normally, I just press Ctrl-A to "Select All" -- which shows any
hidden quoted text -- and then trim it and reply underneath.

Gmail is one of the best webmail clients there is for quoting the
proper, old-fashioned way. :-)
