I am trying to send HTML newsletters and it works fine in most email clients except Lotus Notes 8.
Table size get converted to 100% width even though set to 640. I have tried to encapsulated everything into one table. Tried the following:
<table width=640> <table width="640"> <table cellpadding=5 width=640> <table cellpadding="5" width="640">
Apparently Lotus Notes render it like this:
Of course the table has be formatted correctly like so:
<table> <tr> <td> Foobar </td> </tr> </table>
I found the error. Lotus Notes apparently have an issue with width defined in
<td> tags from time to time eg
<td width="300">. Removing that fixed the layout. It doesn't seem possible to consistently repeat the error. Just to clarify, this might give you problems:
<table width="600"> <tr> <td> <table> <tr> <td width="300"> Foo </td> <td width="300"> Bar </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table>
Where as this will work better:
<table width="600"> <tr> <td> <table> <tr> <td> Foo </td> <td> Bar </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table>
Have you tried wrapping the outer table in a div element and setting
width:640px; ..? That might do it...
