It has already been covered (and is in my sig), but reply to list (only) 
is generally preferred.

Not covered, however, is that quote/reply format (as opposed to top 
posting) makes things /far/ easier to follow... and to reply to when one 
needs context from two or more quote levels.  No need to quote the entire 
thing, just the bit to which you are replying to, to give it some context 
(summarized a bit if necessary for length; major snippage/summary is 
often necessary when replying to my often rather verbose mails...).

Duncan - List replies preferred.   No HTML msgs.
