Outlook 2013 & 2016 pushing text up out of view

Sorry, me once again - Last hurdle, annoyingly - I wasn’t having this problem yesterday, but sent a test today and it’s suddenly there.

Outlook 2016 and 2013 are pushing the text up and out of view -

I’ve attached the final HTML that has gone through Silverpop/IBM marketing cloud.

I’ve found some solutions that suggest making the parent table align=“left” but this hasn’t worked (and just made my email worse). Any ideas of how to get around this?

Many thanks for any help,

No problem at all! Looks like this issue was caused by the following line of code:

table { font-size:1pxline-height:0mso-margin-top-alt:1px;mso-line-height-ruleexactly

It’s inside a conditional comment just before the end of the head section. Remove that (or make it more specific to what you want to make tiny font) and your text will appear just fine.

Thanks so much Geoff! :] Declaring font/line-height values made my images tuck up instead, so I took the value out and everything looks great.

Thanks again,
