I'm not sure one needs to be this radical, but just be aware of when it switches and alter it if you feel it inappropriate for the site.

Whether there is such a setting or not, simply be in forms mode in the edit field and use the command control home to move to the top of the edit field before you write. If you use automatic switching, that may not work, I don't know. Maybe it moves you to the top of the page and goes into browse mode. Just one more reason I believe strongly that people should turn off the automatic changing feature and manually go into forms mode or into browse mode.

Hi, Arleen,

Is there a way to make replies come to the top of a message in basic HTML? I used to use gmail's site and whenever I replied to a message, it would go to the bottom of the original message instead of the top. That's when I switched to an email client like outlook.

Hi, Arlene here. Sorry I use IE and I am allowed to switch to Basic htm or whatever it is. So, IE and Chrome will allow you to choose.I find HTMl is more easier then Standard!I too don't care for google's features. Just as long as I can read and delete mail too. but you should check your trash folder to clean it. Cause Google can be a pack rat.

If you choose to switch to standard view there is only a couple ways
to switch back to basic.

1. chrome allows you to switch back, firefox/waterfox will not, and ie
does probably because it is old or something who knows.

If all you are using is gmail and settings I wouldn't bother with
standard view, its aparently accessible but basic html is more usable
to me at any rate.

I don't care about 99.9% of google's features though I just want to
make sure I check spam, read mail, etc.
