Hi everyone! I am a graphic designer using Sendgrid to send emails. But sendgrid don't have a function where we can show 1 image size on desktop and another image size on mobile responsive devices. Also, they don't allow us to design an email that has a column that is 500px wide and one that is 300px (or the % equivalent to that). SO, I went into Mailstyler and created those 2 sections we needed and added in the code to SendGrid (which allows for sections of code to be added in). Done I thought- but no!!! It appears fine on Outlook and Gmail desktop and mobile Outlook BUT NOT ON gmail mobile responsive. SendGrid have been absolutely useless- their technical department saying they do not handle these problems. Not sure if there is any help you can give me!! Below is 2 sections of code that come from Mailstyler. Without these 2 codes SendGrid works fine on Gmail, but we need the design that this offers.

The code you posted is a bunch of garbage it's no wonder that it works at all on anything.
"show 1 image size on desktop and another image size on mobile responsive devices."
most of this is done using the html image tag and attributes then css to handle rest.

I tried figuring out the code you posted and I can't make heads or tails of it!
So here's my response:

This isn't HTML it's a mess and if an app created this I'd get rid of it!
1. You always start with the content! NOT the overall layout!
2. Learn HTML basics, especially table construction.
3. Nested tables do not go inside column headers(<th>..</th>).
4. If you use nested tables always apply comments so you know where the table begins and ends and what it's being used for. Then you can set styling according to the object itself.
5. Validators don't even allow the use of inline styles they convert them to psuedo classes, they're just one of many of the W3C's bs attribute screw ups. Inline styles were meant to get rid of all the layout and styling based attributes, but it actually removed the learning curve and system defaults(see form elements). Not to mention that CSS was really meant to aid document formaters(webmasters) by allowing them to create custom stylesheets for the "visually impaired" for tags such as 'italicized' and 'emphasized' text. Instead they made it a requirement that never should have been. HTML is a unique language unto itself and should not be defined by or depend on any other language!
6. No one uses all caps for styling properties anymore.
7. When using styling properties the last properties to be applied are: background, border and color. These are used for creating themes such as holiday or special occasions or special subjects such as nature or space related themes etc. where images, borders and color schemes are applied accordingly.

there are a lot of other problems with this code, but I'll keep that to myself...wouldn't want to seem like I'm blowin' a gasket again!
