My rules are something like this.

If you are saying something that can live without any other context,  
top posting is fine. In fact, you probably shouldn't include text  
from earlier in the thread at all. Of course it's not really top  
posting if there isn't anything below it.

If you are replying to something specific, you should quote the  
relevant parts and respond below. This lets someone who is reading  
only your post understand what you are saying.

These first two rules can be combined, or course, if your comments  
fall into both categories.

HTML and the associated formatting, images, and graphics really  
aren't necessary in email. I'll either send an attachment (for those  
that let me), cut and paste the URL, or just write in text. I guess  
I'm not as fervent about it as some people, but I do prefer my mail  
HTML free.
