I am at a loss on how to do this.  It seems so simple.  I have three lines of text.  The middle line also contains an image that is a bit higher than the line height.  I do not want the image to increase the line height.  I want it to creep into the space of the line below it.  

Here is my sample mock up.

Please give suggestions.

Well good idea, but that just made the line gap at the bottom instead of the top of line #2.

I'm not sure what you mean by

>> I do not want the image to increase the line height.  I want it to creep into the space of the line below it.  

Unless you position it absolutely, the entire line will have to make room for the image vertically.

For that specific example the best I can come up with without really messing with your layout is

 
<img align="top" src="btn_edit.jpg" style="vertical-align: bottom; margin-bottom: -6px;">
