Trimming posts

When posting to the list, please trim prior discussion to the relevant
context only. And try to avoid top posting--responses should be
interspersed with the minimal relevant context they respond to (and
titles should reflect the new content).

For example, on text-to-speech:

|Nice to hear from you, Brad... [6 more lines]
|> Have you looked into the idea of text to voice... [4 more lines]

Not bad--but Alan's response would be much easier to understand BELOW
Brad's comment.

On completely unrelated (and unmentioned) BVA issues (interspersed
comments from Alan and David):

|>>|I have made a first cut... [72 more lines]

In other words, the large majority of the post has nothing to do with
its content.

Yours, David...
