Hotmail – problems with Symbols solved

June 5, 2012

Last month Hotmail (for some strange reason) started to replace symbols like ©, ® and ™ with 19px X 19px (emoji) GIF image.

To help designers out if you have img {display: block;} in your inline CSS code for images within your html email code (see Have you had image spacing problems in Hotmail and Gmail recently?) each symbol image will be followed by a line break.

We are still to find out the reason for this but fortunately there is an easy fix. Add the following code in between the style tag at the top of your html email code.

.ExternalClass img[class^=Emoji] { width: 10px !important; height: 10px !important; display: inline !important; }  

It’s fine to add this code in between the style tags at the top of the email, however make sure you still style everything else within the email using inline CSS so the other email clients can interpret the html email code.
