Using Stylesheets in Custom XHTML

Have been trying to use stylesheets from our website when constructing a custom email, but when I preview, none of the styling takes effect.

 

Here is a snippit from the top of the code :

 

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
<head>
<title>2018-11-LSG-CI-Training-Program</title>

<!-- Bootstrap -->
<link href="http://inovis.global/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="http://inovis.global/css/TMW-bootstrap-style-base.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

 

Probably a very simple fix, but I am stumped!

Thanks for any help

Hiya @MarcL12,

 

Thanks for the good question!  Our system actually can not use outside style sheets.  That style tab in XHTML only pulls styles in the actual sheet itself.  Styles can be added using the style sheet or by adding inline styles.  The following is a link to an article we have on Custom Code email creation.  I do apologize for the inconvenience.
