Techie Tip of the Week: CSS Rules You Can Use in HTML Email Newletters

When designing an HTML Email Newsletter, you need to be careful about using the newer web-creation techniques like HTML5 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Several popular email clients (in particular, Outlook and Google Mail) cannot understand or process the majority of CSS rules, so if you use them, the email will end up looking bland and ordinary.

Fortunately, Campaign Monitor (a commercial email newsletter service) has put together a Guide to CSS support in email — a web page version, a PDF version, and an Excel spreadsheet version to help you figure out which CSS rules you can use, and when you can use them!


For more information on creating HTML email newsletters, come to our Techie Festival Lecture Creating HTML Email Newsletters!

These days, email isn’t just plain text anymore. In this class, you’ll learn how to create state-of-the-art-looking emails with colors, fonts, and graphics, laid out into columns and sections. We’ll cover the tools and steps you need to take to create beautiful, professional emails, as well as some of the problems you might encounter (and how to fix them!).

Bring your laptop to play along with the presenter! (Demo files will be provided to participants.)
