Using HTML or CSS in Yahoo Groups messages

Learn how to use HTML tags or CSS properties in Yahoo Groups messages, as well as a list of allowed HTML tags and attributes.

If you’re using the rich-text editor to compose your message, you can directly edit the HTML source of your message by checking the View HTML Source checkbox. You can use a variety of HTML tags and CSS properties. The list of tags, attributes, and CSS properties that we allow is provided in the table below.

Special note on image tags
To use an image tag in your message, you must specify a height and width for the image (for example: ). Images without specific height and width attributes won’t display.
