"An acceptable alternative to bottom posting is interleaving your
responses with the previous message. This can help the flow of a
message if the subject matter is complicated. If you do this, make
sure that the previous message has each line prefixed with '>' or
similar to denote that it is not your writing.
   *An optional method for formatting interleaved posts for easier
reading is to leave 1 blank line between your text and what your
responding to and two blank lines after your text and the next section
of quoted text."
