Hi Dennis,

(...) In a discussion of mailing-list etiquette, there was a link to an useful web page by Italo Vignoli: <>. (...) Now there are two questions: 1. What practices using e-mail messages best support accessibility to mailing-list conversations? (or, if that is too broad, what practices definitely discourage accessibility). I would prefer that those who use accessibility provision answer for themselves. 2. If this is not the best place to ask, what is another place that might be a good place to find answers to this question. If there is no "right" answer, I can be with that. But if there is a preference I would prefer to honor it.

Trimming quoted text is obviously a good idea.

With regard to top-posting versus bottom-posting: I have seen discussions about this on other mailing lists, for example most recently at <>. Jared Smith of WebAIM wrote: "The debate over top-posting vs. bottom-posting will never be resolved." And that reflects the outcome of other discussions on this topic.

Best regards,

What do those with access limitations confirm to be the best that works for all of them? Whatever *that* is, I will do everything in my power to honor. I am not an expert about accessibility, but I recall that this is one of the cases where top posting is the best choice. I suggest to have a double check, though, as I am not competent in this domain. [ ... ]
