How do I get my images in my html email to style correctly in Hotmail?

When I look at my email in hotmail all my images have a couple of pixels of padding on the bottom.  This doesn't happen in any Outlook 2007 or when I look at the email in browsers.  I even apply the style attribute "display: block" to all my images and it still doesn't work.  I did however discover by using firebug that my style of "display:block" no longer is applied to my image elements in hotmail.  Even though I have it in my code.  Any ideas why hotmail would strip my style attribute from my images?

It is probably being overriden by another style element.

To ensure that this does not happen you can do two things...

Add the !important attribute to the end - like this

display: block !important;

or you can be more specific with the definition - ie

.ecxecxMsoNormalTable tr td div font span img {
      display: block;

Thanks for the quick response.  I actually just figured it out just a minute ago.  By applying the attribute align="left" to every image removes the padding on the bottom.  I hate html emails lol
