Gmail HTML Editing

The gmail Rich Formatting editor has a rather limited range of HTML options ... simple formatting ... colours etc ... Embedding html is actually trival ... just not ...obvious ...

 

  • Prepare the message in the WYSIWYG HTML editor of your choice
  • Render the text in a browser or the editors preview window
  • Copy the content
  • Paste into the gmail editor pane
  • voilà!
