Well, it must be a sighted thing to hate top posting. As a screen
reader user, I love top posting as you are right there with what the
other person is saying easily accessible at the top of the heap. This

finding out what the replier is saying. Oh well, I will abide by the
wishes of the majority; no sweat. Did I do this right; I used Gregg's
great tip and told Outlook to use quotes before each line. A new
experience for an old dog.
