And, I'm trying to be good little html girl and use the proper align tag,
but it causes a problem in one instance where an image is at the top of a
table cell and I want it centered.  If I use the <.p align = center> tag
then the image drops down a bit from the top.  If I just use <.center> it
goes back where I want it.  How do I get around that?
