How does Sparrow render responsive HTML emails?

Further to my previous post, How does Mailbox.app render responsive HTML emails?, I had a suspicion that Sparrow app for iOS was also suffering the same affliction. I conducted a quick test to confirm that this is indeed the case.

Below is a screen shot showing how it renders the two methods; I’ll duplicate that code information underneath.
