There's a DIV which contains an image and its caption.  The style for the
DIV specifies that it should float left with a 4 point padding.  It's
followed by a paragraph which is styled with a left and right margin of
zero, a thick green solid border, oversized text and a padding of 10 points.
Since the DIV is floated and there is enough large text to exceed the height
of the image, I would expect the underlying paragraph to resume its zero
left margin below the image.  It's actually a well written pair of classes
which IEv5 interprets quite well.
