Hi Adil,

I think using the <br> tag after the page heading or after the image will do
fine.  A close tag is not required for <br> tag as It will insert a line
break right after it.

Please let me know if it works the way you wanted it to.

What do you do when you cannot find an appropriate HTML tag
to mark the content on your page? For example, if I have a
heading at the top of the page and then a single line with
the author's name, what tag do I use to surround the author's
name? If I use <p> and </p>, the enclosing text is not exactly
a paragraph. What if I want a caption beneath an image?
Again, I could use <p>Figure 1</p>, but that's not a exactly
a paragraph of text either!

I know about XML and XHTML, but would like to use tags
understood by as wide a range of browsers as possible - in
other words sticking to the current HTML tags for structural

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Regards - Adil
