Hi There,
I am using ACY Mailling component.
I have some html for the newsletter and the images inserted all appear correctly in the sent newsletter.

However I have some inline CSS styling like this
<div style="float: left; width: 100%; background-image: url(images/main_middle.jpg); margin-top: -5px;">

and the image is relative, but stays relative when it is sent...so it doesn't show.

The other images are also relative in the code by get sent absolute so are ok (they are just
<img usemap="#Map" src="images/header.jpg" alt="Lisa Blue Newsletter" border="0" height="350" width="770" />  normal links)

so why isn't my css stuff showing correctly

I am using JCE editor

Perhaps the mailer is parsing the code and looking for <img> tags and adding the absolute path? If that is the case then it would probably ignore the path in your <div> tag unless you are able to modify the parser.  A good test would be to try this:

<div style="float: left; width: 100%; margin-top: -5px;">
<img src="mages/main_middle.jpg" />
</div>

Open in new window



That simply takes the image you were trying to apply as a <div> background and uses it as an image inside the <div>.  If that parses correctly you could either use that as a work around or see if you can modify the parser.
Good luck!

Also, any relative paths for images will not work once the newsletter gets sent...the recipients will need to have full URLs in the image path.

I had to use the background image in a table rather than in the div as some email clients don't read background images in divs
