bgcolor outputting wrong colour in ie and outlook
Recently I created an email campaign and therefore was using a table based layout. In order to set the tables background colour I used the bgcolor attribute. It was simply set for white using the following:
<table> <tr bgcolor="#FFF"> <td>Should output white!</td> </tr> </table>
All the test emails to my mail app on the mac showed a perfect layout, and perfect colour settings. But when testing in outlook, and even Internet Explorer it showed up as black?
So to sort the issue I had to use the full 6 character colour setting which then worked fine. Strange little issue!
<table> <tr bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> <td>Should output white!</td> </tr> </table>
