  1. Thanks for all the views. I've found a dirty work-around for Microsoft email client related HTML emails.It's 2011, but I'm limited to MS Outlook 2003 and MS Word 2003.FWIW, I'll list my steps and how I stumbled upon the solution.1)I compose an email with basic HTML/CSS with a simple word processor such as notepad.2)To preview the email, I used Internet Explorer v.8+. HTML/CSS displayed properly.3)Next, to send the email, I used Internet Explorer's "File>Send>Page By Email". And because Microsoft Outlook is my designated email client, the HTML/CSS will show up in a new Outlook message. *T
  2. Hi,Once, again, I must disclose I'm a beginner in the HTML/CSS scene. I did a google search, but nothing seems to address this issue.I'm sending HTML emails via Microsoft Outlook/Word 2003. Yes it's 2011, but I'm limited to Outlook 2003.When ever I open Microsoft Script Editor in Word 2003(yes, I'am aware this is outdated too), I place my HTML with CSS Inline style tags in the script editor. MSWord displays the CSS Inline tags correctly. Then I send the HTML email via MSWord.However, after receiving the HTML email in Outlook 2003, certain CSS Inline style tags are not displayed properly. I use

  4. Problem solved! Here's the fixed HTML. Thanks for your assistance. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN""http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html><head><title> Daily Alerts</title><style type="text/css">body { text-align:center; padding-top:30px; }table.outside { margin: 0 auto; width:760px; padding-top:30px; padding-bottom:30px; border: 1px solid black; }table.inside { width:670px; text-align:center; margin: 0 auto; border: 1px solid black; padding-top:30px; padding-bottom:30px }tr.height{ height:10px; }td.top { width:670px; background-colo
  5. Thanks for looking, I cleaned up the novice mistakes =). Still having issues though.Good: The left image is what shows in IE7+ without Doctype. I need this structure and style.Bad: The right image is what shows in IE7+ with Doctype. Notice the big gap above the green bar; that the green, orange, and red bar heights are much "taller" than the text; and that the tables are not center-aligned =(.Thanks for reading.
  6. Hi,This is my first post. I'm a self-taught beginner in HTML/CSS.I decided to declare a Doctype for my html page. But doing so disorients the table row heights & the CSS alignments that I declare for my tables in Internet Explorer. Without the Doctype, the table row heights & CSS alignments are fine. What are my solutions without having to remove a Doctype declaration? Thanks for reading!This is my code: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN""http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html><head><title> Daily Alerts</title><style type="text/css
