I am on the 91st page out of 190 restyling an old table based wesite with css & html5
in this page i have 6 small images in the center of the page with text to the right of each image
http://roofgenius.com/Price_Per_Sq_Pages/Test.asp
i fooled with the text placement enough to make it acceptable by using floats and <br> tags
in the 3rd image from the top with the text: ( "In the roof pitch drop down list select 6/12")
 I would have moved the text down a few px if i knew how.
If i remove the floats the text is too low against the image.
How do i do this ?

I did not test your code with any validator do it yourself. One of the important part of your page is you are using padding-top that is the main problem. Decrease the value of padding like below and you are not using p tag in that line add <p> tag.
.section_area .middlepanel p {
    color: #000000;
    font: 13px/18px Verdana,Geneva,sans-serif;
    padding-top: 14px;
}

Thanks  jagadishdulal, but I cannot change the style sheet as many pages are already
referring to the styles and that might mess them up

Again you can manage that line add a separate class for that line.
