This is a very thorough article on how to do HTML emails right David, I knew all of the techniques you mention for HTML 4 builds, however I haven’t explored the HTML 5 email builds or explored mobile device email clients so this is great information.

I have tried to be clever with email design in the past by trying to avoid tables and instead use deeply nested DIV’s or UL’s with style tag’s in the body (to avoid Hotmail stripping out of the head), but it would just become an unflexible pickle.

ID and Class use in CSS can be buggy too, so I totally side with keep it simple and nest tables to avoid a whole load of pain.
