I've used Expression Web to put up a web site for a store, but I understand I cannot use EW to design a ewb page and then transfer that to a email inMail. I copied the "Most Basic Web" given in Ian Lloyd's paper and can read it in IE. When I copy it to Mail, it won't show. It simply displays as the html code.
I'm using Vista Home Premium that is up to date and the mail program is set to Rich HTML. I recognize this is a web design forum, but can anyone teill me how to get an html page made in notebook into an email?

Reason: Please don't add email addresses to posts, use the Private Message facility. :)
MailChimp, among other sites, offers good HTML templates specifically designed for a wide variety of mail clients. Outlook, being a Microsoft product, is of course the hardest one to deal with of the larger mainstream clients.

This is somewhat true, but a lot of people feel that text-only e-mail is outdated. The e-mail list program I use gives users the option to sign up for HTML or text-only e-mails, and when I send out a mailer, I create two newsletters, one HTML and one text. Two birds, one stone.
