Email by CDO: Text formatting of variables in a rich text message body

Hello Experts,

I have gotten Access 2013 to create an email using the CDO method. I would like the message body to be rich text and am using the following HTML code to build up the message body:

strHTML = "<HTML>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<HEAD>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<BODY>"
strHTML = strHTML & "<Font size=3>This reminder was set on: </Font>" & ReminderDate
strHTML = strHTML & "</BODY>"
strHTML = strHTML & "</HTML>"

Now, ReminderDate is a variable string, and I would like to apply HTML formatting to it as well. Specifically, I am trying to make the font size of the ReminderDate value consistent with the rest of the text in the sentence. I have tried all sorts of combinations but cannot figure out what the correct syntax should be. Can anyone help ?

Try
strHTML = strHTML & "<Font size=3>This reminder was set on: " & ReminderDate & "</Font>"
You can also use format if your ReminderDate is date/time field
