I am working on "JCJC Wall of Honor" page. All military emblems are at the left side of page except the first one (U.S. Air Force). I cannot get it to remain at the left side no matter what I do.

Please help.
Thank you very much!

Louise

Hit refresh/reload a few times. Close your browser and reopen it.

John,

It doesn't look right in Internet Explorer. It does look right in FireFox.

Working on a solution.....

Louise,

When I did a View Source, I saw a whole lot of SPACE BAR presses (they show up as a "&" followed by "nbsp;". These mean non-blank spaces, meaning it will never wrap. This caused the first image to go all the way to the right side of the screen.

Maybe you were trying to center or right-justify the image at one time, but that is the wrong way to do it.

The best way to justify an image is to place it in a table cell and then change the alignment of the table cell so it is RIGHT or CENTER aligned. This will not insert any special space characters, it will just position it correctly.

I fixed it for you by removing the "&" "nbsp;" characters.

I should have added "Kick the tires" and "Look for non-breaking spaces."

Darlene,

You're over qualified! I can remember seeing a job vacancy announcement for a clerk typist in one of the U.S. government alphabet soup agencies stating applicants should be able to type a minimum of 20 wpm. Ouch! Admittedly this was probably 35 years ago but I thought it ridiculous that 20 wpm was considered adequate for a typist position, IMHO.

I know about the govt's qualifications..my Mom worked for the State of IL..and most of the civil service people where incompetent. How they ever passed those test??? I will never know. I tried to get a postal workers job about 10 years ago..and they said I failed the test..I guess I have to logical of a mind. I am too smart for the govt.Rolling EyesRolling Eyes
Thanx for the kudos!!!
