Wierd one I know.

Have designed a html email template using inline css and divs, now need to convert it to tables as they seem to render better in email browsers.

Never really designed with table so a new one to me! haha

Any links? tips?

There are no tips I'm afraid, just outsource it or prepare to learn the awkward and cumbersome way of the layout table.

Yeah, its certainly not perfect... I hate the code already! it appears so messy!

Thanks for the tip! will give it ago. Im breaking up a design from a another template at the moment (similiar layout to the one ive designed) so will see if I can fix it that way first!

Will let you know how it goes.

I also hate to say this, but when it comes to html email builds, using tables is the only way, and when you have a complex design ... (feel sick) Dreamweaver will become your dirteh little secret!!

Also keep in mind that most email clients don't support things like background-images or other "advanced" css properties :rolleyes:
