IV. NO rich media advertising
V. Comments <!-- comments -->
Hyperlinks must begin with the "a" and "href" together. Do not include attributes before "href".
Ex: Correct: <a href="http://www.url.com" target="_blank" >
Incorrect: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.url.com">
Always make all the links in the mail shots open in a new window, (_blank).
Always check that images have full paths:
Ex: Correct: [url removed, login to view]
Incorrect: images/[url removed, login to view]
If the images paths came from the client’s server its ok.
If you used mapping on images, please use a unique name for it & don't use: "FPMap0"
Do not begin folder names with an underscore "_".
If you are using a <FORM> we accept only the GET method, POST is not accepted. All <FORM> tags must have "METHOD=GET". Scripts receiving the <FORM> input must accept the "GET" method.
Fill out the height and width tags for images, this helps accommodate faster load time.
Ex: <img src=" http://images.maktoob.com/emailshot/client/images/test.gif" height="15" width="30">
