    HTML Email messages with SharePoint Designer

    My problem I am experiencing is creating custom html email messages with sharepoint designer using the action send email.  I got the emails with all the data that I need, but I figured I would format the email messages to look better and display the information better. I am running office 2007, sharepoint designer 2007, moss 2007 and exchange 2007(if that matters).

    My problem is that I create the html in another web developing tool(or even sharepoint designer), then I copy and paste my code into body section of the send email message box within sharepoint designer.  I start the workflow, email is sent.  Problem is that the email is not formatted the same way when it comes into my email. Any suggestions to solving this or am I going to just live with the bad formatting or stick with the bland email with no html formatting?  I have thought about going with visual studio, but would prefer to go this route, any suggestions maybe an add in for sharepoint designer created in vs?

     Here is a sample of my code that i paste into sharepoint designer:

    My Returned Code(screenshot)

     Any suggestions?  Thanks for the help?

    I solved my own problem.  The problem is that you need to have no spaces where possible.  So if you would write: <td width="10" height="10"></td> you should actually type it as <td width="10"height="10"></td>  I read somewhere else quickly stating that spaces should be held to a minimum when doing what I was attempting, but I thought they were referring to other spacing options.  I think what sharepoint, sharepoint designer, outlook 2007, exchange or some other part in the mix is taking the spaces as where paragraphs should begin, thus why it inserted the <P></P> tags.
