Work with HTML, CSS to develop email newsletters that look uniform in most frequent browsers using most frequent email clients. Different email clients deal with HTML and CSS in different ways. The challenge was to test newsletter emails in gmail, outlook, yahoo on safari, firefox and chrome to make sure all combinations display the newsletter properly.
