Thanks for the post Nicole!
This is what I'm trying to do http://codepen.io/frankDraws/pen/ctnrH?editors=110
I've read through a slew of articles (including yours) and trying to figure out how it applies to this template (it's a partial template) but I'm hitting a wall. Not sure what I'm overlooking (going cross eyed from all the devices I'm testing on).
Primary platform is Outlook (OSX/Win), then Apple Mail (iOS/OSX) then Yahoo app (iOS/Android).
I wrapped all fonts with font tag so Outlook will default to Arial instead of Times (due to the fact we're using web fonts).
