Limits on HTML email?

  • I was chatting with a friend the other day about using my outliner to write email, and later it struck me, why not?
  • So I wrote a script that took an outline and rendered it as if it were on a web page and then emailed it to myself.
  • When I opened it in GMail, not surprisingly, all the text was there, but the Javascript and most of the CSS had apparently been stripped.
  • This led me to wonder if there's anything like a standard or best-practices document that says what email clients typically do with emails that have script and style?
  • BTW, here's the text I actually sent, and a screen shot of the email. The wedges don't do anything when you click on them in the email.
