I know how to copy a quote to my reply, but how do you add the name of the author of the quote?

just click on the Quote button at the bottom right of the post you want to quote
or

basically the same as adding as follows:

(quote="mickey mouse") message (/quote) just replace ( ) with [ ]

mickey mouse wrote: message

What would "Code" be used for and "List" in the message area?

"Code" is so you can show code structure without the code being executed in the resulting message as in the case of BBCode. So instead of saying:

(quote="mickey mouse") message (/quote) just replace ( ) with [ ]

You can use the code tag to show the actual code syntax:
Code: Select all[quote="mickey mouse"] message [/quote]

Good call Groundhound - I just Googled it and it said the same thing. All of it is a way to use HTML tags without actually using HTML.
