Table layout and font problems with Lotus Notes

Some of the most common problems that you can encounter when you send HTML email to Lotus Notes are related to table layouts and fonts. Thus, to have you email displayed well in a Lotus Notes environment, even in older versions of Lotus Notes, the best solution is to use a very well defined HTML table structure. Specifically, every HTML table tag should specify

<table border=”1” cellpadding=”0” cellspacing=”0” width=””>
      <tr>
            <td valign=”top” align=”left” width=””>
             </td>
       </tr>
</table>

The other issue that older versions of Lotus Notes have involve font colors and font sizes. For instance, you may find that headings and paragraphs display the generic system font. One of the solutions is to use the font tag and specify the color of the font tag and you can also specify the size, if needed. In addition, even if you don't force the font color, you should always define the color of your links with the style color value.
