Need advice for painting high-gloss latex on trim

I'm painting my wood trim with high-gloss latex and need advice for the following:
1) What is the best method of minimizing brush strokes? I heard something about painting in horizontal strokes and letting gravity pull the paint downwards to fill in the strokes-- but I thought this might look odd on vertical trim pieces if the strokes are still noticeable. I also read about adding Floetrol to the paint... will this help?
2) What type of Purdy brush works best for this application (high-gloss latex on wood).
3) How soon after applying the first coat do I put on a second? Or am I supposed to let the first coat dry thoroughly and lightly sand before applying the second coat?
Thanks...

sounds like you answered your own question. let the first coat dry thoroughly and lightly sand before applying the second coat?
