Email with text and and sliced images

Hi,

I have created and email .. it has a sliced images and a few cells with text,

its reletively simple, and it looks exactly as it should when i open it up as a html file in a browser.

The problem is when i email it, it goes all wonky in all email apps.

am i doing something obviously wrong here....

any idea why id doesn't look the same.

Who is Participating?
I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've personally only used Mailchimp and actually just finished testing yours and it works out fine.  I'm using Outlook 2003 though. Nothing seems to be funky with the code either.
