Sending HTML Email

I am using the EmailSetBody function of the 360 Works e mail plugin with Filemaker Pro 9. I am using some HTML code to insert a header, footer and some text in between. The header and footer are sourced from online and the text comes from a field on the database. This works! The only problem is that the text is not constrained to the width of the header and so this makes the email look odd. To solve this I used a table, but the code, GetAsCSS(Customer::Text Field), that worked great outside the table only shows the code, not the referred to text, when used in the table. I have attached a copy of the code I am using.

Can anyone help.

EmailSetBody(

    "<html><body>" &

"<table border=\"1\" bordercolor=\"#000000\" width=\"600\" bgcolor=\"#FEFEFE\">

<tr>

<td> <img src=\"http://address of the header.jpg\" ></td>

</tr>

<tr>

<td>  GetAsCSS ( Customers::Text Field )</td>

</tr>

<tr>

<td> <img src=\"http://address of the footer.jpg\" ></td>

</tr>

</table>" & 

    "</body></html>";

    "html"

...<td>  GetAsCSS ( Customers::Text Field )</td>...
is the guilty one...
you need to concatenate fields or variable and text properly
...<td>" &   GetAsCSS ( Customers::Text Field ) & "</td>....
