While I haven’t gone much beyond what I have covered in this series, it should be possible to do a lot more in formatting terms to the emails. One thing I have thought of, but not tried yet, is wrapping a table around the fields at the top of the table to align them into a neat layout.
A couple of things I have tried, and which did not work, are:
- Adding styles to the approval links – any style I added to these links, such as padding or line-height, was ignored.
- Adding a div around an image and setting float: left – the image did not float in Outlook.
The final point I would make around formatting the emails, is that just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. If you do format the emails, keep it simple.
