I am using an ezine template I found online that is supposed to display properly on all platforms using all different types of email software.  I have been fighting with it though.  I want the second image of the single man on the roof to display bigger.  It shows up perfectly in DW.  Not sure what css code is causing it to fail to get bigger.  Any help would be appreciated.

Because you are using an obsolete table layout, the size of the image is constrained by the cell that contains it.

You could play around with the size of the cell but then you run into the biggest problem with table layout, and the whole layout gets screwed up.

This piece of html is taken from your source code:
<td width="376" valign="top"><img src="img/p_roofer9.jpg" alt="Bedford Underwriters" width="376" height="350" border="1" class="small" style="max-width:260px;"  />
<div mc:edit="liwc600_content00"> </div></td>

Open in new window


As you can see. the problem is with: style="max-width:260px;
Remove this, and you can set the image dimensions as you please

I modified the cell width and it worked.  Weird, thought I tried that yesterday and it didn't work.  

As a side note, it is my understanding that I need to use tables for ezines because it is the most reliable and it works on nearly all email programs. From my research css doesn't translate well across all software.

where is style="max-width:260px?  I did a search in the code and could not find it.
It was part of the image tag, which you had just removed!!
