My apologies to the group, I am trying to work out of memory as my e-mail inbasket just hit a 'bump in the road' and lost all of its contents. Such are the glories of a GUI interface.

A person, sorry I do not remember your name, raised the matter of block display. I admit that the value block does appear to logically indicate the display of an item, however, the term 'block' is relative. The margin setting is specifically set in relation to the browser itself and is therefore relative to the size of the browser window. Block appears to assume a relation to the browser that is not defined - a step is being skipped. I would think that a layer defined with a margin followed by a <br clear="left" /> might solve the display appearance that you are trying to achieve.
