Background Colors

Remember when we told you (above) about how web-based email applications (like Yahoo!Mail and Hotmail) strip out your <HTML>, <HEAD>, and <BODY> tags? That’s what you need to remember when coding your background colors and images. You normally specify that stuff in your <BODY> tag, but you can’t rely on that with HTML email. You’ll need to create a big, 100% wide “table wrap” around your email. Set your background color in that table, and use some CELLPADDING as needed. If you’re into CSS, you might be tempted to use a <DIV> instead. But we’ve seen DIVs break quite frequently in email applications, so we don’t recommend them.
