Dear Josh,
Thanks for all the insights.

I seem to be having this problem regularly so I must be doing

Turn on the table's border (border="1") and you will see the reason.

I'm sorry I still didn't get it when I turned on the tables borders.

One more question.
If you put both the image and the text in the same cell and then float
the image and align the text to be middle, can you only have one line of
text next to the image? My text is two lines and once I hit <br> the
second line goes below the image. Does the <br clear="all" /> only work
for the next paragraph of text? I solved my problem by aligning left and
just putting in some <p> tags to move the text down but I was wondering
about the above.

Thanks a lot
