      May be html is disabled in your email application. I know in gmail there is some issue in displaying css styles but it works well with yahoo & outlook.

      Yep it does T.
      1.Open SP designer 2010. Got to your ‘send email’ action.
      2.Right click, properties, it’ll open a window for ‘Send an Email Properties’
      3.The last option there is for ‘Body’, click on the right column where it says you’ll see a edit option with “…”
      4.Click that and it’ll open a string builder window, where you can type a HTML file. It’ll format your workflow mail accordingly.
      Its really cool!
