Message Text Formating

Message Text Formating

What is the best way to control text format in the message? I want to control the font and have the the text flow according to the size of the email window (Outlook) rather than be fixed.

Dreamweaver does not seem to like linking a CSS Style sheet using an ablosute URL as shown in the turtorials. I found some notes on the web that mention using InLine formating but I am not sure that is a prefered solution.

Inline formatting is probably the best method.

Thank you for the sugestion. I tried Embedding the styles. This has allowed me the flexibilty of reusing the styles for a number of similar documents.

Is there an automated approach to handling text that is Copied & Pasted from Word into the message area of a form email? I have tried a pasting into NotePad and also WordPad as unformated text, but the special character codes as still there.

Using the white-space: pre value for the message area, retains the paragraph structure but I can not get rid of the first line indent. I have tried setting the text-indent: 0px. This is more of an HTML question.
