Thanks Dave,

I tried that one, and the results were "interesting". I reverted to the 
<table> method (I should have thought of it earlier, seeing that I had just 
used it in the lines just before [go figure!], but my mind was too frazzled 
to see it.

Now I've got the text sitting nicely beside the pix, but no matter what I try 
(i.e. <td cellpadding="5"> or whatever, the text butts right to the left 
margin, and won't format nicely -- it looks, in three words "ugly and 
unprofessional". It offends my typsetting days!

Is there any way I can set the margins for the test, in particular, the left 

Code is now:

        print "<br><td bgcolor='#ACE'><table border=0><td align='left'>
        <td cellpadding='5>'<img src='709-2585.jpg' width='120'
        height='120' alt=' '/></a></td>
        <td bgcolor='#ACE'><td cellpadding='5'>{$_SESSION['desc']}</td>

Any ideas?
