renderhtmlform service appropriate for emails?

Apr 19, 2011 12:36 PM

Hi all, I'm trying to use the renderhtml service to render forms into html to place into an email. However, when I open the email with different clients the html gets wonky (especially in Outlook 2007). I'm wondering if there is a more suitable service to use, or what parameters to set for the service to make the html more email friendly. I know that there there should only be inline styles and that it should transform to NoScriptXHTML, but are there any other options that i'm missing?

 

Thanks!

    Outlook 2007 doesn't support all HTML tags except few. (e.g it supports hyperlink, font styles, color but not buttons, text inputs, checkboxes etc.)

     

    It internally use MS Word rendering engine to render the HTML content. Hence your output will not be interactive.

     

    Why don't you prefer attaching PDF forms to email and receive completed form through email?
