I never thought I would need to know old-school HTML, but it appears that my old days coding are not over with email and newsletters.
I created my first email signature, but I am not very confident on my skills, considering it’s from back in the day when I was a teenager and my main priority was anything but work.
I used the following conventions.
- no nested tables
- no css floats
- font attributes instead of styles
- inline css, no external css
- tables and marged cells
Here is a link to my signature - http://tinyurl.com/7rgumxa
I know old-school coding is hard, but I don’t feel it should be ugly because it’s hard. Is there any problems out there that can help me code modern, then convert to old-school code? Or will I simply have to do the same as I did for the signature. I would dread what one would have to charge to do an email newsletter.
My main sources of education were:
I am sure there are people in this world who just do newsletters and email singatures all day long, but it’s just not what I do. If anybody has any tips or hints I could learn from this which would improve my coding skills please let me know.
PS: Been a while since I coded like this.
