Ah-ha! Thank you! This does indeed work. I'm having a hard time wrapping my
head around this part of CSS..the positioning as well. Thanks a bunch,
you've made my day!

Yes, you can :)

img.blogbody only selects a <img> element of class "blogbody", that you
don't have.

What you want is a img that is inside of a div class="blogbody". The way
to express that with a CSS rule is

div.blogbody img {

border: 1px solid #DEDEDE;
		padding: 4px;


Now that should work.
