I appreciate the attempt, but the code I saw left much to be desired, plus
it was completely broken. First I tried just saving it to the directory so
it could find the style sheet, images, etc., didn't work. Then I tried to
clean up some of the major gaffs, couldn't seem to get it that way either.
I'm willing to concede *maybe* there's something my email program did with
the HTML, but I don't think Eudora alters HTML at all before displaying it.
The only thing I saw in the code that maybe you were referring to was the
<.tbody> which I have never seen used before... is this some Microsoft deal
with tables?
