Ok, this one I'm going to fix now - captions on images

  Referring again to my CSS version...

  You'll notice a large amount of whitespace on either side of the article.
This is deliberate, it was first created to leave room for captions for the
images. I could place the caption text "under" the image, but I found this
to look pretty bad and limited the amount of text. Plus the whitespace looks
nice too IMHO, and leaves room for the nav bar.

  If you scroll down a bit you'll find an image. In the table version of the
site I place the text to the right of the image:

  Now I'm trying to duplicate the effect using CSS. The important thing is
for the image to align with the para, and the text to align with the image.

 What would be the proper way to do this? Use a table in the para and then
move it slightly to the left or right? CAPTION tag the caption and move it?
