HTML emails, or welcome to the circus


Exploring some fancy-shmancy options for a project newsletter. That ^ would be the header.

Started looking at what it takes to make an HTML design work for email purpose - f#cking hell - that's not even HTML anymore. Of very little CSS supported all of it needs to be inline (i.e. <tag style="color:red">), no background-image, no CSS positioning, tables for the layout, nested tables at that, no way to reliably embed attached images and externally linked images are nearly always blocked by default. Absolutely positively no way to use @font-face. Circus.

Emailing a link to an update starts looking like a viable option... or perhaps just sticking to a plain text email.
