    Does anyone know of a way that will force an email that includes HTML tags to be displayed as text only -- irregardless of client mail viewer?

    I can't seem to get Hotmail, for example, to display the actual tags instead of interpreting them -- I tried pre tags and that didn't do it?

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    will surrounding each tag in <xmp></xmp> or <code></code> work? I know in a browser it means so that it won't interpret it, try it in email.

    replace the < and > with & lt; and & gt; (I had to put a space between the two or else it would just have showed up as < and > , so remove the space)

    XMP or CODE tags should work. Its your browser that is interpreting the HTML though not the email provider.

    Thanks for the responses! Unfortunately, none of them worked for hotmail. So, it looks like I may need to allow for HTML/email choice when the user subscribes or something similar.

    Thanks again!!
