Design a fare amount of HTML email, a client has asked to have a navigation at the top of a email so it can anchor to different sections in the email - firstly, is this doable in a HTML email and secondly will it work in different web and email clients, don't want it opening new pages from this link
I just tested this in Outlook 2003 and it doesn't appear to work at all I'm afraid.
Haven't tried it in any other email clients
In addition to the ID attribute, you will need to use the name attribute in a anchor tag. <a href="#anchor1">Link</a> ------------------ <a name="anchor1" id="anchor1">anchor text</a>
I have used this in HTML email and it work for large number of clients, should always work for browser clients (i.e. gmail, yahoo)
As long as the client supports the ID attribute it should work.
