Hey again :) Just for future reference make sure to encase your code with code tags like this: (Using [code ][/ code] without spaces)


[code]int test[/code]

As for your code, I have a better idea of what you are trying to do now. But I don't quite understand your problem? You have made a page that can be displayed from a browser and you have mentioned how it already works in Chrome and IE. But you have said it doesn't work in Hotmail? I'm not quite sure what you are trying to do? ... If you could please better explain your situation with bg being white? and maybe please send me a screenshot of what it looks like, the picture will be quite descriptive as-well.

Sorry I didn't mentioning explaining the situation more clearly above, I thought maybe by your code I would understand exactly what it is you would like to do.

Peace Out Posted Image

Hi,sorry I wasnt more descriptive.but basically its a newsletter that goes out to customers whove purchased products,and when I open the newsletter in mailchimp or any browser directly the background shows normally,the grey one,but in the hotmail(of the user whos going to view the newsletter) it comes white,the background is removed.I basically need it to show in hotmail and other email applications,thts my only issue.
