I have an HTML newsletter that I am launching from Vertical Response.  It is displaying properly in Outlook and Yahoo, but in Hotmail and Gmail it creates spacing or padding between table rows.  Does anybody know a workaround to this?  I have tried everything and the extra space doesn't show up in Firefox firebug or the source code.  I am attaching the newsletter.

This page http://www.campaignmonitor.com/css/ shows things that Gmail doesn't support.  The only thing I see right off is the <style> tag which Gmail doesn't support anywhere in the document.

Dave,

Thank you for that valuable information.  After looking through the CSS guide, I can still find no reason that my table rows have spacing in between them in Hotmail and Gmail.  The <style> tag in the body was added after the fact as an attempt to see if padding the tables would eliminate this issue.  I will upload a screenshot so you can see what I am talking about.

Here is a screenshot of both outlook 2007 and hotmail views of the newsletter in question.  As you can see from my code that I uploaded in the previous post, There is no reasoning I can see why there is space between the table rows.  Is there another method I am not using?  Maybe applying a height to the tables?  I thought of that, but the breaks are between the table rows and not the tables.

Try adding style="padding:0px; margin:0px;" to all of your images.  Those lines are at the image boundaries and the CSS on Hotmail may be breaking your display.

After some research, I found out that using style="line-height:-1px;" in all the <td> tags that contain images, and style="display:block;" in all the <img> tags corrects the issue across all browsers.

I was offered some really good starting points, but still nothing seemed to fix the issue.  After doing some further research and testing, I found this solution to correct the issue.
