Strange HTML formatting in Outlook 2007 ( HTML <p> formatting ignored! )...
Posted on 2007-04-03
Looks like once again, M$ "improves" their product and it works worse.
I have resumes that I send to clients as HTML files within the body of the email. Under Outlook 2003, these would follow the formatting of my HTML perfectly, just as if you were viewing the file in IE.
Now, under Outlook 2007, I have noticed some weird changes. The first one I see is that PARAGRAGH FORMATTING, including MARGINS, LINE HEIGHT, etc are completely ignored. Any idea what the deal is here? For example, I have one <p> with the right margin set to .5 inches. It works perfectly in IE, but in Outlook 2007, no margin. Another example: I have <p> height set to exactly 10 pts in my HTML, but Outlook ignores that and spaces at 1 full line. Is this a bug?
Please let me know if there is some way I can fix this new "feature".
