Best way to do html e-mail, sending via php?

I've never done html e-mail before, I've just set up php mail using http://www.postmarkapp.com

I was wondering how I would go about sending php mail as html?

Does anybody have any previews of a php page sending html e-mail I can look at to get the jist of how it works?

Currently I'm just putting text into a variable and sending it as a message, how is it done for html?

Regards

Do you still want to use Postmark to send emails?

In Postmark, you set the TextBody property to the text version of your message, and the HtmlBody property to the html version of it. It is good practice to always include both. Depending on whether your user's email client supports HTML or not, the appropriate message form is rendered. Read more on this here.

Edit: Added an example. I generally like splitting my string into separate lines so that I can indent it nicely like a real HTML file. Of course, if you used templates, that would make it so much better.

$htmlBody = "
<html>
    <body>

    </body>
</html>
";
