Tableless CSS & Email Printing

  • # May 15, 2010 at 8:23 am

    Hi Everyone

    Been a member of the forum for about 5 minutes :) I tried a search on tabless css and got a few pointers, but not this exact concept.

    I’m a school guidance counselor who is in the process of working with our student information system company to brand all of the forms we use online for our purpose – including content, graphics, functionality, etc. I can design things in any editor I want, but then have to upload them to their "editor". So forgive the fact the CSS is located in the header information and not externally in a sheet.

    Can you have a look at this form and give me some advice on what I need to do in terms of when the form is emailed, it doesn’t retain any sort of layout in the email. The company-provided default form, when emailed, retained the layout of the website in the email as well (but was created in tables).

    This is my first major work in CSS and would appreciate kind, constructive criticism.

    Email forms should be written using tables because of the way each email client handles the html. See this … entry16456
