Preserving the format of top command result


I have tried the below command in RHEL5:
top|mailx -s "test" ""

But in the mail the content was not in proper format.
Is there any way to preserve the format ?

# 2  
 top -d > top.lis
 uuencode top.lis top.lis mailx -s 'top output'

# 3  
The best would be to save the output to a file... but you can try (I have noRH5 here... just big HP SUN IBM...)
top -b -n1 |mailx -s "test" ""

What does it give?
