Get the HTML content from a gt_tbl object as a single-element character vector. By default, the generated HTML will have inlined styles, where CSS styles (that were previously contained in CSS rule sets external to the <table> element) are included as style attributes in the HTML table's tags. This option is preferable when using the output HTML table in an emailing context.

as_raw_html(data, inline_css = TRUE)



A table object that is created using the gt() function.


An option to supply styles to table elements as inlined CSS styles. This is useful when including the table HTML as part of an HTML email message body, since inlined styles are largely supported in email clients over using CSS in a <style> block.
