Gmail doesn't support it out of the box. The only possibility is using some software like Thunderbird and send the mail via SMTP to your mail-account.

If you copy and paste the source code, you will get the source code in your email, but if you copy and paste what you see in your browser, you will get a (mostly) acceptable rendition of your original HTML. You just have to make sure that you are using the "rich formatting" mode. The big downside is that you cannot ever (as far as I can see) edit the ...

You can actually work around this if you're using a browser with a developer tool that allows you to edit the page's DOM (source), like Chrome, or Firefox with firebug. If you're using Chrome, you compose a new email in Gmail, type in some a dummy text, select it, and right click in the email body and select 'inspect element' . Highlight the dummy text, ...

According to the Gmail blog, an iFrame is used to host the code which handles gmail so that messages opened in new windows can be used without having to reload resources, and can persist even if the parent window is closed. See this blog post for some more details on how it works. For the technically curious among you, our friends on the Chrome team made ...

No, you're constrained to use the Rich Text editor. See also: How do I create a decent email signature in Gmail?

You shouldn't use br elements for separating paragraphs. From the HTML5 specification: br elements must be used only for line breaks that are actually part of the content, as in poems or addresses. A paragraph should be enclosed in a p element. The div element doesn't add/change any meaning. At most it changes the styling of the content (via CSS; ...

Google hasn't made it publicly known what format they store Google Docs in at this time. The closest I can find to anything official is this post: We do not expose our native formats at this time Google Docs supports importing and exporting in a range of formats (including docx, odt, pdf and html), however they convert going each way to their internal ...

There really is no way to do this as it stands right now. What I would suggest is adding a link to the Creative Commons license that you are using in the footer (or header), and that should be good enough.

Usually you can write that into an HTML file, render it, and copy the email from the browser into Gmail's compose pane.

Just my two cents ... Winhttrack?

The important thing is the domain of the link. When you hover on that link, if the URL that shows up (usually at the bottom left of the browser window) starts with http://facebook.com or https://facebook.com, then it is safe no matter what follows the site root. That being said, the link you gave opens a Facebook page to Report Mistaken Email. It says: ...

Try Amaya. It's a desktop WYSIWYG editor much like DreamWeaver but it's free and open source. If you want a web-based one, you might want to check out CKEditor. You could check its feature list here.

word2cleanhtml This site cleans up the HTML for any pasted document. It applies a number of filters to fix various things that Microsoft Office puts in its HTML, and gives you a nicely formatted result that you can paste directly into a web page or content editing system.

You may want to try http://www.jumpchart.com/. It can export projects as HTML pages. Highly recommended.

I can think of two reasons, one human the other computer. The human reason - it shows visitors that you care about these things and that your site is going to be well written and not try to exploit their browsers. It doesn't say anything about the content though :) The computer reason - it means that your site/application should render correctly and ...

Since v1.18, out-of-the-box you can do the following (as described here): <div class="mw-collapsible mw-collapsed"> This text is not collapsible; but the next is collapsible and hidden by default: <div class="mw-collapsible-content">{{Lorem}}</div> </div>

I can confirm that Gmail does allow you to send tables, but provide very limited editing support. What I would do is to copy the whole e-mail into an online HTML editor like TinyMCE and do the editing there. You can also copy it a local tool that supports HTML editing, like Word or Dreamweaver.

Try wrapping your posts in a div tag, it won't affect the layout and I found that helps when WP tries to add characters to my posts

you can try JessyInk - which is now part of Inkscape (opensource). There is an comparison or Prezi vs. JessyInk. You can try their showcase presentation - I put a copy of it on my Dropbox here. In discussion they also mentioned Sozi (also opensource) but I did not try it. :-)

In HTML, the characters < and > are special (so are quotation marks in certain places). If you want these characters to appear, you'll need to encode them (as &lt; and &gt; respectively). The ampersand is used for encoding, and it follows that the ampersand is also a special character. If you want an actual ampersand to appear, you need to ...

Google docs won't actually render HTML, or execute any code pasted into it. What you can do is view your HTML as a page in the browser, which will show: Copy it from the web page, then paste into your document - it will look like this: The question you referred to was for people who wanted to present their HTML code within the document with syntax ...

In Thunderbird, there is a plugin called stationery which lets you see the HTML of an email and edit it. Perhaps that's what you're looking for? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/4394/

If you want to send HTML emails, you need to use a tool that let you write the content of the email yourself instead of relying on WYSIWYG editors. The most part of mail clients doesn't allow this feature, mainly for security reasons. With web email clients, such as Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail, you can try to use the WebKit Inspector (in Safari and Chrome) or ...

This URL will not include the slug but the slug is just for easier reading. If you added a custom slug then just append it to to the URL. To get the blog's URL do an API call to api/authenticate and it will return the URL for all ...
