HTML

Smart Quotes

Problem

Also known as “Curly Quotes”, smart quotes can appear in your template and this can be problematic because smart quotes are unicode and thus often renders incorrectly.

Unicode is an extension on the ASCII key set and encompasses a wider arrangement of characters. You can include unicode characters in the body of your email, but you can’t include them in the HTML tags.

How It Happens

This can be done if you are copying and pasting the code from an external source, or if you keyboard settings has this enabled.

Solution

Replace the Smart (Curly) Quotes with Plain (Straight) Quotes.

Curly and Straight Quotes HTML & CSS

CSS

Not all CSS style elements are supported in every email client. Verify the CSS element is supported in your testing email client.

Media Queries

Problem

In Sendwithus, each media query in the template, have to be written within their own style tag.

How It Happens

The reason behind this is the Sendwithus CSS inliner will attempt to inline these media queries into an HTML element and thus rendering the responsiveness obsolete.

Solution

Move each media queries into it’s own style tag.

You will also need to add the same media query as a media attribute on the style tag.

<style media="screen" type="text/css">
body {
    width: 75%;
}
</style>

<style media="only screen and (max-width: 650px)" type="text/css">
@media only screen and (max-width: 650px) {
    body {
    width: 90%;
    }
}
</style>

<style media="only screen and (max-width: 480px)" type="text/css">
@media only screen and (max-width: 480px) {
    body {
    width: 100%;
    }
}
</style>
