Outlook 2003 and Div tags

Hi all!
Has anyone else had trouble with using div tags nested inside td tags in tables for html emails? A while back, I had an html email I was testing in Outlook 2003 and it completely ignored the div tags, which contained my inline styles. I had to remove the div tags and place the inline styles inside the td tags. It was mostly a padding issuse. Well maybe it didn't ignore the divs completely, because the font styles were there. So Outlook just ignored the padding in the div tags. Has anyone else had this problem and why is this?
Thanks in advance for any help!
