Hi guys,

Hope you are all having a good day.
I am relatively new to email coding and am completely self taught through trial, error and looking at other people's code to help me develop, because of that I am constantly learning but often making mistakes as well.

One thing I am interested in, is why certain people code in certain ways.

Below are two simple pieces of code that when rendered produce quite similar results across the board yet most people use the first version where as I use the second.

Are there any benefits, advantages/disadvantages to using either way or are both ok as long as the final product renders correctly?

Cheers
