I'd go with the second option. Transform the XML using your favourite XSLT processor, Saxon, .NET etc. and send the resulting HTML as the email.
Here is a follow-up question.
Let's look at the issue backwards going the other direction. Does there exist a tool or a 3rd party program that can take an HTML file and split it up into an XML and XSL file that will effectively display the same thing in a browser than the original HTML file?
Once I have decided how I want the HTML file to look, is there some sort of tool that will split an HTML document into an XML and XSL file that will display in a browser the same way as the HTML will?
I imagine that it might be a built-in feature for dreamweaver or some other web authoring tool. It shoule be, I think.
We masters must want to do this sort of thing from time to time.
