Hi Eli, unfortunately this did not work for me. I want to see if you think that maybe the in-line styling of the parent elements of your <a> has anything to do with whether or not your link gets styled by OWA? In my email I have styled links and un-styled links that all share a similar architecture which I find perplexing. Do you think you can weigh in on this?
Thanks for the reply. I think I got to that "style campaign" link through your site actually haha. I will have to try out your work around though, its pretty clever.
Yeah, so here is where I ran into the use case. I developed on a responsive template and in this email I had a little calendar icon next to "+ Google Cal" button as one image. For desktop they were 200px wide. And for mobile I want them to scale to be 100%. Now, even as a max quality .jpg, it still looked artifacted in a mobile sized browser. Let alone on my Iphone. I immediately thought about Svg's would be great right now instead of saving out a large jpg.
You are totally right about the pros and cons though. Right now, as Mark Robbins pointed this out, there are many hoops to jump though to get SVGs to work cross all email clients. It would be cool to have that tool in the tool box though.
