    HTML Email Signature

    Hi,
    I've designed the following html email signature:
    http://www.surelock.org/signature/index.html

    However, now, i cant get it to work in Outook 2007
    if i copy / paste it, the white side, and blue side, take up 100% of the space on the email, one on top of other!

    Any idea what i can do?

    Alex

    Could you provide a screenshot?

    You probably already know that relying on more complex CSS in HTML email is dicey, not that I would flat out recommend against it. But it sounds like its box model is not too 'accurate' - it may be calculating the widths differently. I'd say floating the elements side by side like that relies a lot on the widths being calculated a certain way - maybe try decreasing the widths of the inner divs and see if there's a point it works. But you may find yourself messing too much with the design. Also, as troubleshooting techniques you could try briefly without borders and/or padding.

    after some research, html signatures do not support floating divs..
    converted to table based layout and it works :-)
