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.
States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.
