I have this code
<img src="topimg.gif">Hello<br><img src="BottomImg.gif"><img src="SideImg.gif">

when viewing the code in IE, it displays a small gap betwen the 2 topimg and the BottomImg.

if you delete the Hello word the gap doesnt show (but i need it).

Putting it in a table is not an option because i do not know the number of colums i would have.

You need the "absbottom" attribute:

<img src="topimg.gif" border="0" align="absbottom">Hello<br>
<img src="BottomImg.gif" border="0"><img src="SideImg.gif" border="0">

Thanks,
GM

add vspace="0" hspace="0" to all your image tags

Actually that won't work in this scenario, because the space is caused by the required line-height of the text.

If you consider the word Hello - the browser creates an overall line height that would also fit yellow. (The descender on the y is what causes the space.) Setting the "absbottom" attribute tells the browser to align the image with the actual bottom of the required line-height, not just the bottom of the visible text.

If you try this:

<img src="topimg.gif" hspace="0" vspace="0">yellow<br>
<img src="BottomImg.gif" hspace="0" vspace="0"><img src="SideImg.gif" hspace="0" vspace="0">

... you'll notice that the bottom of the y actually touches the bottom two images, but the gap is still the same as if the word was Hello.

Maybe you could try something like this:

<img src="topimg.gif" alt="" />Hello<br><span style="position:relative;top:-4px"><img src="BottomImg.gif" alt="" /><img src="SideImg.gif" alt="" /></span>

The results depend on the font size.

assuming that your image are always larger in height than your used font (for Hello text) you may try following:

  img src="..." style="padding:0,margin:0;display:inline">Hello<br style="="padding:0,margin:0;">

This:
<img src="topimg.gif" hspace=0 vspace=0 border=0>Hello<br><img src="BottomImg.gif" hspace=0 vspace=0 border=0><img src="SideImg.gif" hspace=0 vspace=0 border=0>

or the best way would be in a table using width settings:

<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0>
<tr>
       <td align=left valign=top width="a"> <img src="topimg.gif" width="a"></td>
       <td align=left valign=top width="c">Hello</td>
</tr>
<tr>
       <td align=left valign=top width="b"><img src="BottomImg.gif" width="b"></td>
       <td align=left valign=top width="c"><img src="SideImg.gif" width="c"></td>
</tr>
</table>

the error is the alignment of the image beside hello. put it to absmiddle and it works:

 <img src="topimg.gif" width="40" height="40" hspace="0" vspace="0" align="absmiddle">Hello<br>
  <img src="BottomImg.gif" width="40" height="40" hspace="0" vspace="0" align="top"><img src="SideImg.gif" width="40" height="40" hspace="0" vspace="0" align="top">

>> put it to absmiddle and it works
Basically the same condition as the absbottom attribute, it will depend on where the text needs to line up adjacent to the image...
