Using white text in Blackberry mails

Not sure where to place this question but this looks like the most likely forum for it.


I am creating an HTML mail with a Domino agent which includes text I would like to be hidden from the Blackberry user and so I am trying to do this by setting the font colour to white:


So I am using:


<div style="color: #fff">"text goes here" </div> in order to do this in the email.


This works fine in the Notes client display but not in the Blackberry display.  On the Blackberry  I see text greyed out and fainter but still legible.  Does anyone know a way round this.  I have tried various things e.g.


1) <p style="color: #fff">text goes here </P>

2) also put it in a table and using css styles or just text="white" inside td tags and table tags etc - but text displayed in black like on main page

Re: Using white text in Blackberry mails

I just had this problem, too. I'm including a color coded summary in the body of the e-mail with the detailed report attached. The body will have the overall yield in green for >= goal or red for < goal. Anyhow, after playing with the html tags in the body of the e-mail, I finally got the text to display as desired on our blackberry devices. Here's a sample of one of the blocks of code:


<P class=""><FONT face=Smith&amp;NephewLF size=3><SPAN
style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: Smith&NephewLF">Nails Final: 382/382 =
</SPAN><B><FONT color=green><SPAN
style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold; COLOR: green">100%</SPAN></FONT></B></FONT></P>


You should be able to modify above to whatever you need it to say. I hope this helps.
