Microsoft has decided that Outlook 2010 should still use Word to render HTML. A word processor!

At least this is what an article in webpronews claims...

Microsoft has confirmed that they plan to continue using the Word rendering engine to display HTML in Outlook 2010. (Please keep in mind that EVERY OTHER mainstream email client currently used anywhere uses a web browser to render HTML.)
Sometimes, I do wonder why Microsoft makes decissions that are simply... against everything and everyone else... I wish I could know what they were thinking when they decided this.

For those who build e-mail designs and e-mail campaigns... this is just not good enough.
