Can one create an elegent HTML document to be sent by email in FrontPage


R

I get some emails that are a very elegant, impressive HTML document.

I would love to be able to do this.

Is there a simple way to create these with FrontPage 2003?

If so, are there tutorials around to lead me throught the technical stuff?

I know that I need to make all the image links absolute links [that is a URL
configured fully like http://www.wgtn.net/Okabena/images/lake.gif rather
than what would be in a normal HTML document ( "lake.gif" or "../lake.gif"
or "/Okabena/images/lake.gif"].

But, when I try to COPY/PASTE the source of what I have created in FrontPage
to my email client, Yahoo.com, I get lost. The HTML code shows up as literal
text in the Yahoo email creation box. A test copy sent to myself show the
HTML code as literal text. All recipients would see is the source code, not
the elgant, impressive document.

Apparently there needs to be some way to get the email cleint to identify
this as source code. Or there is some other process to follw. How does one
do this?

Or, is one suppose to evoke a browser from your HTML creation and use the
send email function? This is the FILE/SEND/Page by Email option that brings
up the Windows Messaging Setup Wizard.

Since I use the Yahoo.com email service to send and receive email, this
option doesnt rise up and grab my
mind as the answer to my need. I dont think this wizard has a gizzard for
Yahoo. . . . .

Am I missing something simple here?

It's easier with Outlook Express; you don't have to worry about absolute
urls - except maybe for navigation links.

In FP select your content in Design view (no code view) and Copy
Open OE and create a New Message (make sure you set Format to Rich Text
(HTML)
Paste your FP into the message body and your done.

That doesnt work.

Some of the document is there. But;
1.The main navigation menuing system (XFX DHTML menuin system) seems to
display everything at once over the top of other things.
2. The header and other images do not appear
3. The page is not centered
4. The external Css does not seem to be picked up
5. None of the links seem to work.

Surely there must be a way to do this?

nav links would have to be absolute.
more importantly you should keep the page simple...and keep in mind many
people won't see html email.
