[rt-users] RT eats table-tags in html-emails

HTML tables are mostly displaying as expected on my installation (ignoring
missing images and CSS).  I'm running v4.2.7 though; I guess it's possible
that a regression has occurred in a later version.

There are no other relevant settings in my RT_SiteConfig.pm file, and I'm
90% sure that I didn't add any special flags when I ran the "configure"

Looking at the code, HTML::Gumbo would be ignored if it failed to install
properly for some reason.  Are you seeing anything interesting in RT's
debug logs?  I remember having to grab a very fresh HTML::Gumbo version
because of some installation issue I encountered with an older (but still
somewhat recent) one.

Lastly, you've probably already done this, but for the sake of
documentation, RT would need to be restarted after the installation of this
