I need some assistance in wrapping text around an image.   I am using Joomla1.5 and K2 to edit pages.    I have the text wrapped around the images (style:float to left), but I need to have spacing between the image and text exactly like this web page: http://www.coriell.org/about/meet-our-team 

Could you look at the code and let me know how to achieve this?

Add margins to the images.  Your example link has classes for the different kinds of images with the margins they want.  Below is one of their classes.  More info about margins: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_margin.asp
.category-items .leading-item img,  #main .subcategories .subcategory img {
	float: left;
	margin: 4px 10px 0 0;
}
