Add a 4 way switch

I am adding a 4 way switch to a 3 way sw system. I am going to put the the new 4 way switch where one of the existing 3 way switches is currently. I am running 3 conductor cable the the new location and then i am going to put the 3 way sw there. My question is i need to use all 3 wires as hot, how do i mark the white one ??

With tape, or a sharpie.

Either is fine. Don't forget to mark both ends of the white wire as well as both ends of any other white wire that this "re-marked" wire is attached to.
Forget super sized fries. The Washington Redskins could promote healthy eating with First Lady Obama by choosing a (red skinned) turnip for a mascot.
