    Hidden text in Outlook (2007)

    In versions of Outlook prior to 2007, if a message was received from The Lounge with a hidden clue (highlighted in yellow) I could run the cursor over the highlighted area and the underlying text would be revealed. In Outlook 2007 running the cursor over the highlighted area only displays the area in a grey shade with no text being revealed.

    I have tried sending myself a message written in Outlook 2007 with white text on a white background and get the same dismal results when the incoming message is received. That is, the hidden text cannot be displayed... only a grey background is shown.

    I have scoured the MS Outlook 2007 Help files and menu items and have not found any clues to resolve this mystery.

    Have any other Outlook 2007 users <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">found an answer?</span hide>

    Cheers, Bob

    It is because Outlook 2007 uses Word's stripped down rendering engine for HTML messages rather than Internet Explorer.

    Thanks Joe.

    I was really starting to like Outlook 2007. It now has at least two strikes against it... animated gifs (which could be a blessing) and hidden text (it'll just take me longer to cheat by looking at the answer) <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.

    Theoretically, that makes you safer. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> In actuality <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>.
