Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring alternative layouts, part of Creating a Responsive HTML Email.
So now that we've completed this particular layout.…The next thing I'm sure you'll want to do,…is start building some of your own layouts.…So, I want to take a few minutes here and explain, why…I've put some of these things together the way I did.…First, when we have multiple tables inside of the promos row.…One of the things you might want to do is add more tables inside of this area.…Now the reason I put two tables inside of each…row, is because some olders browsers won't support a clearing tag.…So, if your two tables are not the same height, so for example, if this…second table here is a little bit smaller…because there's less text or a smaller graphic.…What that's going to do in older email clients, like Outlook, is allow the third…table to float up next to the first table, sort of underneath the second table.…
