Blank Lines in a Numbered List

  1. I'm having some difficulty when it comes to the format of a post.
    http://brimeyblotter.net/2009/09/06/spectacle-test-ick-le/

    I've created a list, and with it are thumbnail images. I want to create a spacing between 1, 2, and 3 (so the images aren't on top of one another).

    I have tried code that I've found from previous support postings:
    <div style="height:20px;"></div>
    and
    <p> </p>

    However, none seem to have any effect...even if I copy and paste a few in a row. Any suggestions?

    The blog I need help with is brimeyblotter.net.

  2. You need coding for tables, not lists. One possibility out of several:

    <table cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" border="0">
    <tr>
    <td><h2>NUMBER_HERE</h2></td>
    <td><h2>HEADING_HERE</h2></td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td valign="top"> </td>
    <td valign="top">TEXT_HERE</td>
    <td valign="top">IMAGE_CODE_HERE</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    (Repeat for the rest of the text+image pairs.)

  3. Thank you for the suggestion. While I'm learning more about HTML coding, this is just too much for me to do or understand at this time.

    I will change the way I typed my entry and not use a number list.

    Thank you.

  4. You're welcome.

    Complicated formatting is impossible without html, and tables in particular are very useful for all sorts of arrangements. A table is a group of cells arranged in rows and columns. Each cell can contain any data, e.g. text (incl. further html) or the code for an image. Basic example:

    <table>
    <tr><td>DATA1</td><td>DATA2</td><td>DATA3</td></tr>
    <tr><td>DATA4</td><td>DATA5</td><td>DATA6</td></tr>
    </table>

    That's two rows of three cells each - hope it's clear. (From table to slash-table is the complete thing, from tr to the nearest slash-tr is one row, from td to the nearest slash-td is one cell.)
