Inline is fine, assuming you mean splitting each message up and inserting a
reply at the appropriate point. Bottom posting is often regarded to be
better than top posting. catb's page on top posting[1] sums it up nicely:

Sometimes, inline is even better than bottom-posting, especially when you
are replying to a large email with a number of points you want to address.
