    Yup looks kind of nice…………….BUT…………………The only way to get this to actually work would be if the whole email was an image – very bad practice

    *Some email clients wont render background images at all (Outlook biggest culprit – as renders html with MS Word ??!)
    *The only way to do it would be make the whole thing one big image – this is bad for deliver-ability as spam filters don’t like single / big images as they can not read / see what is on them – its also a classic spam technique.

    …that all said it does look kinda nice.

    Classic Dev vs Design!

      Or you set the background image of the (probably a table) to an image and use regular web text.
