Drupal

Please look at http://amcindustries.com.previewdns.com/content/landscape-irrigation-%E2%80%93-sprinklers.

Note the blank space underneath the picture BEFORE the text.

Now look at http://amcindustries.com.previewdns.com/content/smart-controls.

Note there is no blank space.

See attached images of the block with this in it for sprinklers & the block for Smart Controls.

Why aren't they both the same?

Why is it SO DIFFICULT in Drupal to insert blank space on a page?

Did you try using some CSS to the image? You have already:
<img style="float: left;" src="http://amcindustries.com.previewdns.com/sites/default/files/smart_controls.jpg" alt="">
so add to the style:
style="float: left; margin-bottom:15px;"
or whatever spacing you want.
By the way, you should ALWAYS fill out the alt on images, use them for marketing, like alt="excellent irrigation company sprinkler system smart controls"
or something better than that of course!

Also, on the page that does have spacing, you are using <br> which is out of date, you should be using: <br />
HTML that doesn't have a closing tag should always be formed this way.
Did you add the <img> tag? it is also missing the forward slash: <img etc etc  />

The proper way to insert the space would be to add a margin below the image as nanharbison mentioned. But to point out why the line breaks aren't working is because of the css, not Drupal. The behavior would be the same using plain html and css. The reason your line breaks aren't working is because the image is floated left and there is a slight gap to the right of it. This is making your line breaks render to the right of the image rather than below it. The other page is working because the image takes the full width, so there is no room for the line breaks. If you remove the float from your images, the line breaks will appear below them.

I discovered the extra space on the right related to a different problem. My intent had been to have the image the width of the page area.

Thanks!!
