Email template with table changes table format

I am using templates (pages of canvas column cells) when mailing from Coda. This works reasonably well, but I don’t understand why the table settings are not respected.

This is what I see on my (template) page:

and this is what I see in my email:

I would really help if the table settings could be respected. A work around would be to work with page columns, but those are not respected either going from template to email.

If there is already a good workaround I would really appreciate to hear about it, if there isn’t, I hope Coda can add this to the wish list.
