Some mailing lists insist on "inline" replies (and deleting parts not relevant to the response), since it's easier to follow the flow of a conversation and which part of the original message the reply relates to. This LibreOffice list is rather more tolerant though ;o) Where there are already some replies, I tend to just follow the same format, since it's even more difficult to follow when different people are alternating between inline and top posting!

In Mozilla SeaMonkey (similar to Thunderbird), I just press enter a few times at the appropriate point, then type a reply. If you're using GMail's web interface, I notice it hides the original text when you start a reply, but there's a button with 3 dots at the bottom left of the reply box you can click to expand it. Then insert lines and add replies as needed.

Hi :)
Ahh, nicely done Mark! :)  I wasn't looking forwards to trying to
address each separate issue.  I can't seem to figure out how to
intersperse replies like that and rarely ever want to anyway.  It's
excellent for things like this though :)
