# How to quote and link in a comment

Is there any easy way to quote in a comment? You can quote in a question or an answer easily. Just put ">" in front of the quoted statements. However, this does not work in a comment.

Similarly you can write a link in a question or an answer by writing, for example, [here][1] and [1]:the linked address. However, this does not work in a comment.

Sorry if the solutions are well known.

I don't think the block quote formatting is available in comments, but you could also just use quotation marks, "[text]" or «[text]». You could get gray background if preferred by using [text], which would result in [text].
