Hello Lester, Actually, I get what you're saying. But it's true if you read a message like an Html page. then you have to press one or two keys and here you are. But for some reasons even now we are required to quote the messages at the bottom. Be saying "we" I mean those who work for companies making the accessibility solutions. And, BTW, this bottom posting has started just two or three years ago when Thunderbird came in place. But I'll make a template that inserts the text below the quotes if you want :-).

Then you need a better screen reading software - the ones I have seen will jump correctly to the first 'non-quoted' item, then you can scroll back up to the related item if you need to review it. Putting comments BEFORE the quote is simply the wrong way around and is a lot more difficult to follow how ever you access it conventionally. The 'prefered' method for this list is in-line or bottom posting and the requests to change that have been rejected by the majority of users to date. I develop systems that are used by visually impaired users and in general the norm is for correctly ordered messaging - not reverse ordered ones -- Lester Caine - G8HFL ----------------------------- Contact - http://lsces.co.uk/wiki/?page=contact L.S.Caine Electronic Services - http://lsces.co.uk EnquirySolve - http://enquirysolve.com/ Model Engineers Digital Workshop - http://medw.co.uk// Firebird - http://www.firebirdsql.org/index.php -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
