> *Plan*
> Basically I am planning to have email templates that accepts parameters and
> then this will be sent them to users. Email templates could be html  pages
> with css. I was thinking of basically have a php of the template and then a
> function that prints the new email with all the parameters added to it such
> as name of the user, the new comments or if password resets. *Well I didn’t
> do a full research , however in my previous internship I used a library
> that actually allows me to embedded special characters in any email file I
> want to send and then using that library it will replace those characters
> with whatever value I pass.*
