Have you no means to check simple validity of a document as a first step?

Make that padding-left:20px;

IE doesn't do well with em values here, only px will do.

Not saying you're wrong, but ems seem to work ok in my home page:

Maybe the font matters.

You can put the alt in just about anywhere inside the <img> tag, like
this:
<img src="imagefile.jpg" width="200" height="100" alt="text here" />
or even:
<img alt="text here" src="imagefile.jpg" />

I get the feeling that you are using sliced images in a table. Yes?
There are other, better ways of doing this. This method is a nightmare
to maintain. As to this particular issue, the alt attribute should be
left blank if the image is for decorative purposes only, eg: <img
src="topleft.png" alt="" height="10" width="10">

Height and width should always be expressed so that browser knows how
much space to allocate for the image, once it is completely downloaded.

The alt attribute should be a short description of the image, unless the
image is for decorative purposes only, eg:
<img src="catpaint.jpg" height="320" width="240" alt="Cat using paw to
paint on refrigerator door">

I always specify width and height myself. I just wanted to point out
that these attributes don't have to be in any particular order inside
the <img> tag.

If it is a link to somewhere, some people use alt to inform where user
goes if he clicks.

If these are decorative images, use a blank alt, e.g.
<img src="url" alt="">

Use meaningful text on images that are part of the content. When in
doubt, read the page out loud, substituting the alt text when you come
to the image. Use what helps the page make sense. Sometimes blank text
is the right choice.

Me in particular, due to my constant swimming and attempts to catch
Phelps. But there was a time that I used to prefer smoky environments,
criminal situations and dirty everything. But, like William Munny in
Unforgiven, I am not like that no more.

This doesn't make sense to me. I don't know what you mean by it.

> and he says that could be a dangerous situation.


Likewise this. Do you mean that the mailto link won't be useful for
those who don't have mail clients configured to make use of it. "A
dangerous situation" sounds like your server might get hacked or something.
