Hi portal123,

Do you mean how can you specify CSS styles inline?  Use the style="" attribute.

<a href="b.html" style="margin-top: 30px"><img src="a.jpg" border="1" width="300" height="100"></a>

I'd like to keep top margin space 30px for href link

I put attribute margin-top:30px; in href tag with style. But, margin-top space could not be chnaged. I'd like to know how to make margin-top at <a href><img src="" border=""></a>

I made  like <a href="b.html" style="margin-top:30px; margin-left:50px;"><img src="a.jpg" border="1" width="300" height="100"></a>.

margin-left works, but margin-top does not work. I would like to know how to do this.

Links are non-replaced inline elements.
Images are replaced elements, so you can set the margin on your image instead.

You can also make your link a block element using style="display: block".  Then you can use the margin-top attribute.

But this has side effects.

Thanks. I have one more question. If  lining up two elements horizontally like <a href="a.html"><img src="a.jpg"></a>&nbsp;<a href="b.html"><img src="b.jpg"></a>, How can I set up CSS attribute?

What do you mean exactly?
First you should not use &nbsp; and use CSS instead.
And don't forget to supply an alt value for the images.
Example:

<span class="MyClass">
  <a href="a.html"><img src="a.jpg" alt="a"></a>
  <a href="b.html"><img src="b.jpg" alt="b"></a>
<span>

Then you define your styles in an external css file:

span.MyClass {
  white-space: nowrap;
}
span.MyClass img {
  margin-top: 50px;
  border: 1px solid red;
}
