MailStyle - HTML Emails with CSS Jump to Story

MailStyle is a library written by Jim Neath which aims to make your CSS-styled HTML emails better accepted across a wider range of email readers. See, there are a lot of mail readers that don't allow for embedded stylesheets or even properly parse page-defined styles into their HTML elements; they often just ignore them all together. So, with MailStyle, you can define a master stylesheet and it will automatically inline all defined and used styles into the HTML email's elements for better reader support. Good rule of thumb: When you think HTML email, think 1995 web browser support.
