That is incorrect. Although we originally started out with Ink, there were too many things Ink was NOT capable of. Ink for example does not support fluid layouts, full-width columns, span-width changes per column, conditional fixes for Outlook and many many other things that RED does do.

Ink is probably the best framework available for hand-coding responsive emails though. That's one of the reasons I mentioned Ink in the article that explains how RED works: a solid code structure, an email generator and the principles of progressive enhancement. Think of the underlying code structure referred to in the article, as a heavily adjusted version of Ink.
The future of web layout has arrived and it's called CSS Grid. CoffeeCup helps you to get ready with a free guide, the Grid Builder app plus cool demos & themes.
