  1. Hi,

    A few more things to add: 1) This (and some more) information is available in the sandbox at http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/sandbox.nsf/ecc552f1ab6e46e4852568a90055c4cd/5407d5b fd7b0f4ce85256cd2004de094?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,mime

    and here: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/sandbox.nsf/ecc552f1ab6e46e4852568a90055c4cd/7479a9b ac473cf9185256a72006b8a19?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,mime

    2) If you're attaching an image you need to use BASE64 encoding to get it to show correctly.

    3) Some symbols won't show unless you specify content-type of your html as "text/html;charset=windows-1252"

    4) The notes client doesn't support background colours or images for html tables. It also does not support the <link rel> tag.

    5) If a user uses the iNotes web client to open the email, it will strip out &lt;html>,<head>, <script&gt; and &lt;body> tags (and I think everything within them). This means that the only way to get css to work is to put it inline with the page content rather than in the &lt;head> tag.

    6) <BASE HREF&gt; tags work in the notes client when added to the head content. However in iNotes, whilst they change the base url of links in the email, they also change the base url of everything else too, so inline images don't work! This seems to be a bug with the iNotes client, and it appears from the support database that Lotus have no plans to address it.

    However, if you can see past these small annoyances, I'm sure you'll agree that this is a valuable addition to tools that can be used to send great looking email messages to users.
