Small Motd.txt Question
Hello everyone, I was making an motd for my server and it was going great until I added a few CSS styles then all of a sudden the motd was no longer working. I was wondering if anyone here with more knowledge of motd's abilities could let me know what I have used that motd does not support. Thank you in advanced to whomever can help me.

html {
margin: 0;

body {

height: 100%;

a {

a:hover {

<tr>
<td>1. Do not ward bombsites or hostage areas, this provide you with a cheap advantage and we do not see it as fair game.<br /><br /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>2. We do not like players over-using maxed races. If an admin asks you to change race and gives you a valid reason you must listen to him.(Ex; "We have many low level players right now and you have a very unfair advantage over them with that race, could you please change?")<br /><br /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>3. If a class is not working correctly please do not play it and report it, whether it's a disadvantage or advantage for you playing that race if it's broken it can prove to be fatal for the server. Abusing a broken race will result in disciplinary actions.</td>
</tr>

What game are you hosting?

The motd.txt is usually a link to an html page (in L4D2 anyway) hosted on a web host. For example see My Motd Webpage[64.79.106.140]

In my motd.txt:

See this and check out the MOTD section.

Note the file extention (.TXT)... This is not designed for HTML or other web programing...

In my MOTD file is as follows:
Welcome to Savannah Group Coop Checkpoint Server
Players: 8 | Bots: 20 | Bot Difficulty: <Easy>
Team Voice-Text Chat: <On>
------------------------------------------------
Vote Kicking not allowed when Admin logged in.
primary admin: sparkie951
secondary admins: flynrph, Vlad The Impalerl

Knappy, Great idea of a link to a webpage... I have 1 extra line available, and I think that I am going to add a webpage to it to give more information about my server for News, Abouts, Etc...

Well in order for the players to use a url in the motd.txt it would need to be a hyperlink (since one can not copy and paste text from the in-game MOTD, thus just paste your motd.html url in the mod.txt:

Sorry forgot I made this, I figured it out and just used iframes thank you all for the responses though. The only problem with this however is scrolling is very slow, but I can manage with that for now.
New Code:
<html>
<head>
<style>
body {
margin: 0;
}

iframe {
border: 0;
overflow-y: scroll;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<center>
<iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="http://taintedgamers.com/cstrike/motd/Rules.html"></iframe>
</center>
</body>
</html>
