    Default HTML Question

    Hello,
    I have a questions in regards to sending an HTML email.

    Actually 2 questions:

    1. On VB.org, DBTECH says this: 'Requires <!DOCTYPE in the body of the email '
    Does this mean that the doctype needs to go within <body></body>?
    2. When sending the HTML email, do you just copy/paste the HTML right into the editor? I've done it this way, and Gmail, and other clients seem to display it for the most part OK. But when you go back to the forum, and click on the 'view past sends' all you see is the HTML. I'm guessing there is another way I'm supposed to be doing this?

    Thanks!
    Chris

    anyone know the answer?
    I've read through this forum, and VB.org and the manual. And didn't see the answers to these questions.

    Hey Chris, sorry for the delay

    Weekends and Mondays are notoriously busy for me, so I don't have time to answer many questions unfortunately

    No, it would look like this:
    [html<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en">
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
    </html>[/code]

    Do you mean you're seeing the HTML without it being parsed?

    1. Great, that's what I'm doing currently.
    2. Yes on the forum itself, you just see the raw HTML
