See the below form script. Why am I receiving the email as plain text and not HTML?

<?php

// Convert POST data
$order_no = ( isset($_POST['Order_No']) ) ? $_POST['Order_No'] : '';
$name = ( isset($_POST['Name']) ) ? $_POST['Name'] : '';

$to = 'info@petewinter.com';
$from = 'Foster and Partners';
$subject = 'Foster and Partners Order from Website';

// Headers
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0rn"; 
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1rn"; 
$headers .= 'From: ' . $from . "\r\n"; 

// Message
$message = "<html><head></head><body>\r\n";
$message.= "Customer Details:\n\n"
			. "Order No: <strong>" . $order_no . "</strong>\n\n"
			. "Name: <strong>" . $name . "</strong>\n\n";
$message.="</body></html>";

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

// Redirect
header('Location: contact_confirmation.php');

?>

Dear,

This is wrong :

$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1rn"; 

Open in new window


Should be :

$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";

Open in new window


Regards

$message.="</body></html>";

mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

// Redirect
header('Location: contact_confirmation.php');

?>

There was also one error with the line :

$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
