Alert: Rendering problems caused by Gmail Themes

Just an update to the GMAIL Themes, courtesy of JC Whitney of The Retail Email Blog:

It would appear that certain “Themes” and marketer’s content and creatives, don’t mesh well together. The blending of background colours, with text, images and HMT Llinks, tends to hide content when displaying the email.

Silver Lining, Contrast Black, Terminal, Summer Ocean and Marina “Themes” appear to have the most difficult time displaying content properly.
