Have you tried putting the images inside a <div> and
adding a 5px margin to the div?  Netscape 4.x doesn't
apply margins to certain elements (such as contents of a
td), but it will apply them to contents of a div, or a
paragraph.  Of course, if your text meant to flow around
your image, this probably won't be of much help...
