top posting works very nicely with mail clients that have a preview 
screen, as well. And, yes, the whole "threading thing" gets implemented 
in a variety of ways (even within the same product).  I use, variously, 
thunderbird, Outlook, Outlook Web Access (OWA)-lite via Firefox/Safari, 
the iPhone client, the Blackberry client, and whatever weird mail client 
is on the iPad

Some do HTML well, some don't. Some convert back and forth cleanly.
Some are threading hostile
Some are bottom posting hostile
Some make it hard to interlineate comments (when someone has a long 
essay with multiple issues, putting your responses in line just makes 
sense to me: the questions/answers are naturally paired)
