Inkcite 1.18.3


Stylable and responsive inline content container

Inkcite’s {span} helper is a more powerful equivalent of the generic inline container you’ve used in other HTML development. Use it to style elements inline with other elements.


Example Inkcite markup:

 Contact us at {span color=#fc9}608-555-1212{/span}.

An example of the resulting email HTML output:

 Contact us at <span style="color:#ffcc99">608-555-1212</span>.

Inkcite’s markup is 17% shorter than conventional HTML.
