When I send a
tag or indeed any self closing tag the source of the message gets altered by SQL Server Mail and the final / is removed from the tag i.e
I'm trying to send valid XHTML but of course
is not a valid for this DTD.
I've tried escaping the / and using the CHAR function both of which make no difference.
I assume it's go something to do with the way Database Mail has been set-up but I can't find anything related to this sort of thing.
