DK 5 - Daily Kos Beta: How Do I Do This Thing (on the beta site)?

Help! I can't figure out how to do X,Y,Z in this new design!

Such as:

  • How do I make nested blockquotes?

  • How do I embed a video in a comment?

  • How do I add an image from another site?

NOTE: Bugs and cosmetic/design issues have their own separate helpdesk categories.

Please feel free to help each other out.
