in reply to Nodes sources, and a quote tag/button

...one can switch to the XML view of the original node, which actually exposes the source of it...

Well, for that, you could simply put the following in your Free Nodelet:

[href://?node_id=`parent_id`;displaytype=xml|parent as xml]

then use your browser's "open in new window" function on that link to view the parent's source during reply/preview.

    Well, you know, for one thing as intrigued as I am by the Free Nodelet, up until this evening I had not been able to use it due to... well long story made brief: just me being somewhat of an idiot - I overlooked, well a bunch of things... and I complained to myself: why doesn't the damn thing work? Indeed I was tempted to ask first or later, and I had resolved to do so now, but instead of doing so in a new thread, in this very reply. Before posting, I tried once again and I found out what was wrong. Now I have the thing up and runnin sitting there.

    Said this, your suggestion partially solves part of the problem. "Partially" because it takes one click away, but still a view of the source would be better than the xml rendering (I don't know other browsers, but FF doesn't show newlines) of it inside a particular tag... "Part" of the problem because a <quote> tag although not strictly necessarily would be very nice and useful: I still want <quote>, and perhaps a pony. Now, where's <quote>, and where's my pony?
