I agree fully with Mervyn and Ken - shortening the post by cutting off
the parts that are unrelevant to the current reply or comment is the key
to this question.

I hate top posting - I still read (as I have learned in early days) from
top to bottom, and therefore would prefer to have the replies in that
sequence, too. Top posting, from my point of view is like reading a book
backwards, or having presented the answer and then reading the question
- so illogical.

Just my opinion.

Kind regards, Heinz
