headers margin reset in hotmail

Hi there,

I'm using <hn> header tags in my code.
with css i reset the margins and padding, but being a cs declaration in the head of the document, or and inline style on the <hn></hn> tag, windows live hotmail does not reset those margin and leave me with ugly unwanted gaps.

does this happen to anybody else?

since Hotmail is an html page itself you can assume it's not going to render any of your code that's in a <head> or <body> tag as it has it's own already. Also i know some online email systems disable inline styles... i think it was possibly hotmail that changed them from style="...." to xtyle="...." . As such we use as much old-school html as possible, ie shims for padding and eg <font size="3"><strong> for large text, that will look correct without needing stylesheets
