To my (sub-)cultural tradition 2 means "to" in the sense of a transformation,
not a direction. T2B reads to me that something abbreviated as "T" is changed
to something abbreviated as "B", Top2Bottom would hence read as taking
something from the top of a page or viewing area and moving it, in its
entirety, to the bottom, not as something starting at the top and continuing
towards the bottom.
In summary, TTB, not T2B, please.
