I'm assuming you're directing this at me, but I'm a bit confused. I didn't top post. I also trimmed most of what I was replying to, and I tried to only include the points I was replying to, but I freely admit I could have trimmed more. In my own defense, I spent quite a bit of time trimming over 75% of what I was replying to (including long signatures and messages from antivirus applications) from respondants who had top posted and who hadn't trimmed the messages they were replying to.

Since I only wanted to make two points, and they were so closely related, I didn't think it made sense to embed those points in the text of the message I was replying to. I can see where my response might have been made more readable, but as I said above, I was hampered by the fact that the messages I was replying to had not followed list etiquette.

The two related points I was making were:
1) JAWS does allow you to read the web page the way it is laid out and
2) using this setting might help read the page in question with JAWS.
