Image Padding

How do I add padding to an image so that it is on 2 sides only so that text is kept away from the right and botton sides of the image.

So maybe something like this:-

.p2 { padding:0em 3em 3em 0em}

Just put the image in a span using that class:

<span class="p2"><img src="yourimage.jpg"></span>

The span will size to the image plus the padding.

This does not appear to work as I had hoped as I loose the test to the right.

This is an example http://www.ashley-wedding-cars.co.uk/examples/about-us.htm where I want to maintain the general layout but increase the space between the master image (the one with the question mark) and the text to the right of the image.

What CSS would I need to write to achieve this@

Many thanks

Hi Jezella,

This is the basic format:

<p><img style="float:left; margin:0 3em 3em 0; border:none;" src="" width="500" height="256">Text</p>

(Don't use align="left" or hspace...)

Sean in an external CSS, should the following work

.top-left-image
      {
      float:left; margin:0 3em 3em 0; border:none;
      }


That table sizing was a problem Sean.
