Hello Reader

I am attempting to construct an email template that can be altered to suit the occasion. The email is in HTML format and looks great when viewed in a browser (FireFox), but when I send it to myself on a test, I just get an email full of code.

My email programme is Outlook Express 6 and I have selected the option to send (mail sending format) and receive (read all messages in plain text unchecked) email in HTML code. I receive other HTML emails from multinational companies and they look good, so I know the email programme can read them OK.

I thought it might be my code but as I said previously, it looks great when viewed in a browser.

These are my first few lines of code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
        <meta property="og:title" content="offer" />
        <title>XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Newsletter and Offer</title>
		<style type="text/css">

Can anyone shed some light on the possible problem?
