Sorry, experimenting here a bit.  I replied as a top post in HTML and my
email was bounced back pending moderator approval.  I'm checking to see if
the same thing happens if it is text.

Again, I'd have to disagree.  The "professional" lists that I am associated
with do not post below.  They usually post within or on top.  It is just
easier for those of us that follow the posts.

   Great Example Daron!  Quote a paragraph (or part of it), respond, then
quote more if you have to and your response below it. As you can see, this
message is alot easier to read since you can tell what I am replying

  I guess I am a membmer of so many "professional" list (many linux
developers list) and top posters will learn "real quick"! [GRIN]
