The other day I was showing the online version of my ezine on email marketing to a client, and was quite surprised to see that the nicely designed layout did not display properly on his Windows PC (I personally use Apple Mac). For some reason, all of the text appeared centred, instead of left-aligned.

As soon as I got back to my home office I went in and changed one line of HTML code in my ezine template, and now I am hoping that’s fixed. Although I have tested my ezine template extensively, it’s impossible to test for all available systems and email programs. But this experience has prompted me to write an article on the very subject: problems in displaying HTML email. I hope it will help you in your own quality control efforts.
