Preamble: Not making excuses for others' actions, but airing grievances because
I'd really like Microsoft to fix this one.

Microsoft Outlook 2010 has a nasty nasty bug (or at least, I consider it to be a
bug). If the e-mail that you are responding to is in HTML format and your reply
is also in HTML format, then you cannot insert text in the middle of the
reply-text. The expectation that you can insert text in the middle of the
reply-text at a different indentation-level fails miserably. As a work-around
you can change the reply-mail to be in either Rich Text or Plain Text format,
but that removes the indentation-level of the reply-text (yuck). It's rather
frustrating and whenever I am faced with top-posting because of Outlook's
iniquities or using another mail client ... I simply use another mail client

Just sharing...
