If you were to go into the HTML part and change the <p align="whatever it says now">  to <p align="justify"> it should work.  Justify is an accepted alignment in both IE and netscape.

To do it without going into HTML, choose format-->font  Then click the styles button, choose the text tab, then you'll see alignment drop down box.  Justify is in there.

messentary is right. But I think U should do it by your hand, don't use style tag of front page. All align tag now support justify (DHTML, from NN 4.5, II 4.0).

I also think it should be done by hand as well.

Just change the align for the text which you want justified.  If you need some further help with the HTML aspect, (which can be intimidating) just post the HTML here, and we can look it over.

Just checking in to see if it worked for you.  Or if you needed a little hand doing the code.

Hi zah,

I will be able to look over it better tonight, when I get home, but two things for now.  You may want to put the image in a cell with the text in a separate cell, and specify the cell widths.  

But if you want to justify now, without specifics, use:

<img src="images/gif_domestic.gif" width="179" height="95" align="left"> <font align="justify">The Hashwani
    Family owns two 5 stars <br>ect...

At he end of the paragraph, close out the font with </font>.. i.e:  
several residential &amp; commercial projects in Pakistan.<br></font>.

Howeever, I'll send you some code to show you what it will look like in tables tonight.

zah,

I put together a page with code for you to check out.  I'll post it here, but if you want it emailed, just post your address.  
What needed to be done were two things.  First, tables needed to be created to keep the text and the images in line with each other.  Specifying a cell width keeps the page from looking strange on different size monitors with different resolutions.  Also, all reference to <br> needs to be removed if you want to justify text.  And finally, the align="justify" has been added.  My next message will be the script.

I already have the page done.  Just email me, and I'll reply with the page.  You just need to place it in the same folder as your homepage, then all the links and images will work.  I didn't save it as the same name you gave it so it won't overwrite what you did.
