I have tried to send a sticky mail with my HTML code included; however, I received an error message that there was a "style code error...continue editing...message not submitted." The reason for the sticky mail in the first place is because W3.org has indicated the code error and I need help making the correction for validation. I see the "style codes are on" notice in the sidebar so is that a function I can change in order to include HTML (or CSS) code in a sticky mail? Thanks.

Phranque....I don't understand either answer "try using the code" or "quote style code for the html." Please be more clear. Thanks.

What you can do is put your code between [code] and [/code] or between [quote] and [/quote]. In that case the Sticky Mail system will not try to understand, format or parse your code, but just accept it as plain text.

[code]this is your problematic style code[/code]

becomes in the resulting sticky mail message

this is your problematic style code
