PreMailer.Net is based on code from these two projects:

For those who would like to try the original you can check out Kevin Blake’s introduction on executing Ruby code from .NET. Changes to Premailer may be needed to support the IronRuby runtime.

The original Premailer is licensed under the BSD 3-Clause License. Premailer.NET doesn’t include a license.
