    HTML styling of text without using CSS markup

    micah_sf
      The bulk of my work is coding HTML emails; and I can't use any css, div, or span tags in my code. I have been using GoLive 2, but just upgraded to DW4. I don't see how to force DW4 to style html inline without reverting to hand coding this. For example, if I want to select some copy and change it's color, I can't seem to do so within the html properties tab. Or if I want to apply a font-family (from Format: Font), I have the same problem. DW4 assumes I want to use CSS. It looks as if DW3, had the option "Use CSS instead of HTML tags" as a preference, but, I don't see that option in DW4. What am I missing here?

          You can, if you make it inline (or if you embed your stylesheet between
          <body> and </body>.
