The Email Standards Project

We all know that email clients aren’t consistent in their support of Web standards.

Up until now, we’ve begrudgingly accepted life this way… but a new effort aims to change that!

The Email Standards Project is a new effort whose mission is “to drive the use and support of web standards in email, working with email client developers to ensure that emails render consistently.” Matthew Patterson and Mark Wyner, the leadership team behind this effort, have kicked things off with an acid test and a report on Web standards support in popular email clients.

There’s plenty of work to be done in the area of email and Web standards support, so find out how you can help!
