My hosting company allows me the option of setting an auto responder, on this ocassion I want the auto responder to be formated in html.

by doing this will i need to add only the table and cells as well as my content or do i also add the head  and body tag etc too like below.



<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<table width="560" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <td>this is the auto responder content</td>

    Hello thatelvis,

    That depends on whether your autoresponder is already inserting any content for you (i.e. a tagline or adverts for your ISPO)

    I would insert the HEAD and BODY statements myself. Any good browser/email program should be able to filter then out if unecessary.
