Turning floated tables into columns in Outlook

One of the many layout techniques for email is floating tables. This technique basically provides similar behaviour to the float CSS property but is supported pretty much everywhere. Problem is that pesky email client Outlook will attempt to ruin your party with its poor CSS box model. Sadly Outlook and table widths just don’t add up, which introduces problems like content appearing below its designed place as well alignment issues. Thankfully however, thanks to Mike Ragan from Action Rocket, there’s a cool new way to workaround this issue.
