One thing about lining up... It's something that can be tricky, depending on the font. Some fonts are "fixed width" fonts, which means that each letter takes up exactly the same amount of space. Other fonts are not, meaning a letter such as i will take up less space than a letter like W . Things tend to line up very well on the former, but on the latter, things might never line up exactly.

Try using a list, like a ul (or Unordered List) or an ol (or Ordered List) can line up a list of different choices. The former uses bullet points while the latter uses number (Roman or Arabic) or letters to "order" a list.

Robert, if you click on the pic in visual mode, you'll have two icons in the upper left of the image. The one on the left will take you to settings for the image. On the Edit Image tab, immediately under the big box at the top is an option for aligning the image to the left, the right, or center. If you choose either left or right, the text will generally wrap around the image.

Below that will be an option that will add a caption to the image. Fill that out, and your caption should appear with the image.

On the advanced tab you can set some properties such as padding, margin, and border so that the image has a little space around it -- "a little breathing room" as Aletta calls it.

Hope this helps some!
