    I want to use real quotes on my headlines using the following symbols (without the spaces, of course):
    Code:
    <h1>[B]& # 1 4 7 ;[/B] This is my headline [B]& # 1 4 8 ;[/B]</h1>
    Then, corret me if I'm wrong, I would have to place the following code in the <head> tag:
    Code:
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/>
    </head>
    But I remember reading an article online that browser-based email programs strip out the head tags. Is this true, or it's okay to go with what I currently have? Thanks in advance!

    Every email client is different. No way to say. :)

    I would replace the <h1> tag with equivalent in-line styling or a font tag with an accompanying <strong> or <b> (i.e. <span style="...">The Text</span> or <font size=".."><strong>The Text</strong></font>)
