    Hi there elegidos,

    the code that I gave you, has been tested thoroughly in these browsers...

    1. IE11
    2. Firefox 25.0.1
    3. Chrome 31.0
    4. Opera 12.6
    5. Opera 18.0
    6. Safari 5.1.7


    I also inserted the index.html file into a "hotmail.com" email.
    This email was sent to my Thunderbird 24.1.1 email program and worked perfectly.

    There is nothing else that I can do.

    My real coding interests are only concerned with modern browsers and not non standard email programs
    that still require twentieth century methodology to even possibly work.

    I made an exception in your case as you are a new member.

    Wow, thanks for all the trouble. The file you sent me, I tested also in chrom and IE (latest versions) but cant figure out why it shows up like that. I even sent it to another email and for some it looks like that. I was think that I might forgot to add some code or something. But thanks for your help I really apreciate it.

    Hi there elegidos,

    if you have used the file that I sent you, it must work in the browsers that I listed.

    Have you tried clearing the cached version from your browsers?

    Clicking the F5 function button should do it.

    I will test it it the other way with the email - Thunderbird to hotmail - just as a matter of interest.

    Hi coothead,

    Yes I tried clearing the cache from my browsers and still the same. Its wierd then why it looks like this. I just copied and pasted just as in the attachment and created a new email and sent it to myself.

    Hi there elegidos,

    I have just checked hotmail and see that it is unable to render either
    "background-image" or "margin-auto" for incoming emails.

    There maybe other attributes that are also ignored.

    OK, probably have to change some attributes then or add more. I will try to find out whats is wrong. Hopefully it something not to difficult or probably just something simple I might of missed. If I find it then I will post it here. Thanks anyway for the help, I appreciate it.

    Hi there elegidos,

    you should not treat email programs like modern browsers, especially "hotmail".

    It is invariably impossible to transfer complicated web pages to email programs.

    Keep it simple is the rule.

    Your HTML should be as basic as possible, with links and suggestions to visit your site.
