This is the simplest test code which reproduces the issue: <div style="background-color: Red; font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Times New Roman, sans-serif;">Hello World</div> (feel free to specify another multiple-word font if you don't have these to test with) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose new email message 2. Select the body of the email 3. Insert > HTML. Paste in <div> tag as displayed above 4. Note: Font is displayed as intended 5. File > Save 6. Close compose window 7. Navigate to recently saved message in "Drafts" folder 8. Note: font color is correct, but font-family is completely ignored If the email is "Sent" rather than saved as a draft the same issue occurs. It also does not need to be a <DIV> tag. Other tags also feature the same bug. Bizarre workarounds: * Place font-family as the first property in the style attribute * Remove single quotes * Specify 1-2 fonts rather than 3 or more Took me forever to troubleshoot and nail down this bug. Bug only occurs when font-family follows another attribute, contains single quotes, and is within a list of 3+ alternative fonts. Really not sure why that combination fails. Related consequences: If draft is edited and saved again, the font-family attribute is completely removed from the code.
font families with spaces in must be enclosed in quotes. You've done this with Trebuchet MS but not with Times New Roman. I imagine the style outght to be ignored altogether from the off.
Hi Robert, thanks for replying. Quoting is optional, however, and if you replace 'Times New Roman' with another font, I believe this bug still persists. And it's interesting that this bug actually vanishes if you remove the quotes completely (works as expected). From W3 CSS 2.1 spec: "If quoting is omitted, any white space characters before and after the font name are ignored and any sequence of white space characters inside the font name is converted to a single space." http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/fonts.html#font-family-prop Simon.
