Hi :)
Thanks :)  That's a relief.  I had assumed that opinion would be divided about the top vs bottom 
posting issue and i hadn't thought about html vs plain-text.  It's a relief to hear that at least 2 
people prefer top-posting for good reasons.  So i don't get it wrong for everyone all the time then 
:)  Thanks guys :)
Regards from
Tom :)

I am blind,

I prefer top posting as i hate having to read what the other person said 
then have to read at the bottom of maybe 3 or 4 other posts what is the 
latest relevant post.  most blind posters prefer this way but I will go 
with what ever is decided.  I have my e-mail set to HTML view as if 
there is a link I can click it.

But lots of blind users prefer plain text.

Avoiding HTML is also a plus for blind users: From what I know,
some/many often prefer text base mail clients over GUI clients.

I _guess_ that for blind people top-posting is much better than
bottom-posting, because finding the new text with a screen reader is
much harder than for a sighted user.

For the same reason, the suggestion to cleanup not needed stuff is
really reasonable.


All The Best
