Admin: possible changes to the appearance of the site

I may need to change the WordPress theme that I use for this site.  For some reason quoting material – which I do a lot – does not work very well since I upgraded.  My apologies if there is any oddness while I experiment!

UPDATE: OK, I have reverted.  The same problems appeared in the default WordPress theme.  It seems that WordPress 3.6 is broken.

When you press “quote”, quite often it just inserts a new paragraph.  It often does not unquote a quoted passage.  And so on.  Blockquoting is a fundamental issue, and WordPress have broken it.

    I have no problems with it, see for example

    You’ve only got one quoted paragraph, tho. And you don’t use justified – wonder if that makes a difference?

    What’s “justified”? Feel free to drop me a line if I can do anything to help you.

    Justified = Right edge of the text is a straight line. (There’s a button for it in the editor). I appreciate the offer, but don’t worry: I need to work out what the problem is by subtraction myself.
