text colors changing

Hey forum;
I have an email that went out last October and when I retest it now the text changes color. The text color is not changed in the preview window, loaded into a browser as html or sent to gmail but is changed when sent to hotmail? Sorry if this is covered somewhere obvious, I've searched a little and can't find it. Thanks for any advice.

Can you post some of the code?

As far as I can tell what's happening is hotmail needs all the fonts with <font tags inside all the block level tags.
I've always done email campaigns without style sheets but maybe that's not best practices. I nested all text inside font tags and colored it black and it's working in hotmail. Not sure if this a good fix but if someone is searching around this worked for me.
