    Instead of this:
    <td style="text-align:center;" bgcolor="orange">
    use this:
    <td style="text-align:center;background-color:orange;">


    Ill try that. Thanks


    It works – thanks.


    You’ll have better control if you use hex color codes instead of basic color names. And you’re using outdated coding; these things don’t work:
    width="100%" border="2" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"
    Your table should be like that:

    <table style="border:2px solid #HEX;">
    <td style="text-align:center;background-color:#HEX;">

    Replace HEX with the colors you prefer. Good palettes here:

    If you wish to change the padding, you must add it to the td style.
    Specifying a 100% width is superfluous, as it’s the default in the theme you’re using.


    Thx, IM not a coder. Found the one I’m using on a forum

    But what if I change theme later. Still no need for 100%?


    Depends on the theme. If you need it, you write:
    <table style="width:100%;border:2px solid #HEX;">
