    Trouble aligning text in content box

    I have a content box with an image in the upper left hand corner. I want a description of the image to align next to the image. I want the rest of the text to appear underneath the image.

    Hello conphill,
    You should check that code in the validator. Your ul is not formed correctly along with several other errors that can easily be fixed.

    Have a look at an easy way for doing image captions. This keeps them together so they stay lined up.

    After you fix your ul like this (see highlighted in red) -
    Code:
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td width="15" background="http://campustapscom.ipage.com/Images/CollegeBarPageBox2_02.gif"></td>
    <td width="624" background="http://campustapscom.ipage.com/Images/CollegeBarPageBox2_03.gif">&nbsp;
     <img src="http://campustapscom.ipage.com/Images/campustapslogosmall.jpg" alt="BarPicture" id="barpics">
     
    <p class="caption">Description</p>
    
    <ul class="list">
    <li> Monday-</li>
    <li>Tuesday-</li>
    <li>Wednesday-</li>
    <li>Thursday-</li>
    <li>Friday-</li>
    <li>Saturday-</li>
    <li>Sunday-</li>
     </ul> 
    
    <div id="disqus_thread"><div style="display: none;" id="dsq-content-stub"><img title="DISQUS" alt="DISQUS" src="data:image/png;
    Then you can put an id on the taps.com image and a class on the caption text so we can style them (see highlighted in green)




    Then in your CSS, make these changes highlighted in red -
    Code:
    #barpics {
    height: 39px;
    width: 220px;
    float: left;
    }
    .caption {
    margin: 0 0 0 250px;
    }
    ul.list {
    width: 100px;
    float: left;
    clear: left;
    }
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    I thought this was resolved, but the new issue I have is with my comment box. I use a comment box run from a website. The box is in the right area, but the like button is floated in the center of the box and outside of it. Try going to the same site and giving it a look. It might just be a new div issue

    Not resolved. If you check out the page, it now has the like button from the comments box hovered in the center of the page
