My biggest problem with sending an html confirmation email was with Eudora. I tested the email in several different email programs (Outlook, Outlook Express, Gmail) with html enabled and without and thought I had it working, then someone with Eudora complained they were getting "garbli-goop" (meaning they were seeing all the html tags). I had to install Eudora and make several tweaks before I got it to work! -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Jon Hughes Sent: Wednesday, November 07, 2007 9:37 AM To: bobm at dottedi.biz; thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] reasonable expectations for email delivery of HTML > > If what I'm saying is reasonably accurate, how do you convey this > message, politically correct? > > -- > Bob Meetin > I am not sure what exactly you are asking, but I have been sending out opt-in HTML emails for the last 2 years... My advice, if you want your email to work in all standard browsers: Use NESTED tables for layout (no colspan, rowspan), and only use CSS for embellishment, and make sure it's inline (for gmail) I am not saying this as a cop-out. Every time I make a table-based email I die a little :( Anyhow, hope this helps. - Jon -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
