HTML in email.  Trying to control DIV email

I've developed a simple page for a mass emailing and I'm trying to control the width of a DIV element when the page is viewed in Outlook.  Here's the page:


I've followed the suggestions found here: http://blogs.sitepoint.com/code-html-email-newsletters/
1. I'm using a table for layout.
2. My CSS is all inline.

The parent DIV, unfortunately, is giving me trouble.  When I send the page, it vanishes completely.  Image 1 shows the DIV border on the page.  Image 2 shows the missing border after the email has been sent.  

Suggestions?  Should I wrap the enter <table> element in a parent <table> <td> combo instead of a parent <div>?

The wrapper table did the trick.  Configuring HTML / CSS for email is so weird!
