%QUOTESTYLE, It always appends a ">"

I want to know if there is a way to prevent TB to append a ">" character when I change the quoting style.

If I set %QUOTESTYLE="|" the quoted text appears as:
|> Quoted text

That's not what I want, I only want the pipe "|" character.

Is there a way to do this?

On the other hand, if I can set the quote to "|", will be the text correctly identified as a quote?, I mean with different color, etc.

Can't be done.

The "|" would not be recognized by TB as quote prefix

Apart from that, the ">" is widely used as quote
prefix, not only for TB, but also for practically every other client there is. And e-mail is about communication, isn't it?

So why should you bother other people with a thing like that?
I'm just a user of The Bat! I don't work for Ritlabs.
I'll add to that by saying that TB is able to reflow quotes - recognisable quotes. a | prefix would render them unrecognisable. TB doesn't make it an option because it should not be an option.
FYI I've found a site with a quick template that shows how to do this:
(Go to "Alternative Quoting I (| replaces >)" section)

In this site you can also find some interesting quick templates.

It's a pity :(

Yes, but (to put it another way) It's a standard  :cry:  ;)
