    Question Image/Text Spacing

    Hi

    I have an image aligned to the left and then some text next to it but the text is right up against the image making it hard to read. Is there a way to fix this?

    Here's the html

    <img src="Images/GRASS_SUNSET.jpg" width="400" height="268" alt="Sunset" align="left"/>
    <p>A yellow sunset through a field of grass. This photo was taken on a Nikon D60 with no flash. The aperture was set to f/10 and shutter speed to 1/25 sec. ISO was at 100 and focal length was 55mm. The photo RAW file was then edited in Photoshop CS5 to give a dynamic yellow look. This photo was taken on May 5th 2011</p>


    and the CSS (for the whole div, although I don't think it's necessary)

    #body { background-color:#f0eccd;
    width:780px;
    margin-left:auto;
    margin-right:auto;
    overflow:auto;
    padding-left:10px;
    padding-right:10px;
    padding-top:5px;
    padding-bottom:20px;

    }



    Thanks
    Thomas

    Hi there TomTom100,

    the align attribute is deprecated in favour of CSS.

    Try it like this...
    Code:
    
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <meta name="language" content="english"> 
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
    
    <title>grass sunset</title>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    #body { 
        width:780px;
        margin:auto;
        overflow:hidden;
        padding:5px 10px 20px;
        background-color:#f0eccd;
     }
    #sunset {
        float:left;
        width:400px;
        height:268px;
        margin-right:10px;
     }    
    </style>
    
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <div id="body">
    
    <img id="sunset" src="Images/GRASS_SUNSET.jpg" alt="Sunset">
    
    <p>
