I tried the pre-formatted text function Tut, and it half worked. Some bits of the code were displayed as code, and some bits were interpreted. I’ve deleted it again because I don’t think it would be very enlightening to anyone reading it.
You’re right Joe91, there are nested tables. The basis of the code was written months ago and put into a Thunderbird template where it works perfectly. I’m surprised that Manager needs to even know the content of the HTML; I would have thought it would just send it as a string of characters to be finally interpreted by the receiving email client.
<table style="border-width:1px;border-color:#cccccc;border-style:solid" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="700" id="emailContainer">
Above is one example of a table I’m having problems with. The intention is to limit the width of the total email to 700 pixels, to make it easier to read if it opens in a large window. It doesn’t work.
<table border="0" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" id=“emailFooter” style=“width:100%;border-width:1px;border-color:#0000ff;border-style:solid;overflow:scroll">
This is another example using CSS styling to control the width of the footer. That doesn’t work either.
I’ve also tried cutting the whole thing down to a simple bit of test code with no nesting or other complications, and that doesn’t work either.
Tut, my old way of working (pre-Manager) has been to create PDF invoices and then attach them to a Thunderbird template to send. I really thought Manager was going to enable me to streamline the process a bit. It’s quite disappointing when I’m seduced by what looks like such a good idea, and then it doesn’t work.
