Recurring problem, getting rid of extra space (no <br>)???

    I'm such a newbie still in many areas though I've been hard coding for
    a few years. Straight-forward simple stuff and I'm okay. Here's one
    I've never run into before, really, and when I have I've gotten around
    it in one way or another. This time, spacing is critical above and
    below the graphics.

    The basic type of coding follows this type of pattern:
    **************************
    <font size=4>1. Click the file-open icon in the toolbar to load the
    AVI file to convert.</font>
    <P ALIGN="right">
    <a href="#linkTop">Top</a>
    <a href="#Point2">Next</a>
    </P>
    <center><img src="images/Jasc Animation Shop - 01 - converting AVI to
    animated GIF.jpg" alt=""></center><br>
    <center>(You can also click FILE > OPEN to do this rather than using
    the icon.
    <br>Longer, but it can be done, too.)</center>
    <br><br><br><br>




    <a name="Point2"><font size=4>2. Type the pathname to the AVI in the
    "File <u>n</u>ame:" box then load the AVI.</font>
    <P ALIGN="right">
    <a href="#linkTop">Top</a>
    <a href="#Point3">Next</a>
    </P>
    <center><img src="images/Jasc Animation Shop - 02 - converting AVI to
    animated GIF.jpg" alt=""></center><br><br><br><br>





    <a name="Point3"><font size=4>3. An "import AVI" dialogue box comes
    up. No need to change anything, just click "OK".</font>
    <P ALIGN="right">
    <a href="#linkTop">Top</a>
    <a href="#Point4">Next</a>
    </P>
    <center><img src="images/Jasc Animation Shop - 03 - converting AVI to
    animated GIF.jpg" alt=""></center><br><br><br><br>
    **************************

    These are tuts I make for myself and are not published on the internet
    ever, so I keep the visual spacing between the items for ease of
    future use as templates for other tuts. What I don't like is the
    extra "lines" in between the elements within the grouping itself (vs
    between the groups which is fine).

    Since the above is difficult to visualize, I'm posting a zip file with
    the entire my html file and the graphics it's pointing to. It's all
    self-contained, so just unzip (i.e., to the desktop for easy access).

    I'm posting to alt.binaries.freeware, and hope access to that ng is
    okay for anyone looking at the file.

    The post has "HTML file to fix of extra space" in title.

    Thanks everyone! This is a new technique for me, easy to use for help
    pages for myself when I leave off using an app for some time. I don't
    have to re-learn a process, just consult my own pages.

    Thanks!

    Okay, done. File posted.

    The new technique is the "align" (see first paragraph above). I've
    always used tables before but this time, since I kept running into
    long sentences in the first cell which threw off the file and the TOP
    and NEXT codes, went looking for aligning.

    Does this "align" throw in an extra "hard return"?? If that is the
    case, though I still want to use this as the coding is much simpler to
    deal with than the tables, how do I get around it?

    Thanks once again! :eek:D
