    Hi!

    http://www.beaconacademy.org/dev-wpbeacon/wordpress/about-beacon/leadership/

    1. How can I top align the text next to the picture?
    2. How can I 'justify' the text like a newspaper column?
    3. The picture is overlapping into the 2nd banner. How can I control that?

    Help GREATLY appreciated!

    Linda

    1) Looks top-aligned to me...
    2) Put text-align: justify in your stylesheet on your paragraphs.
    3) Put clear: both on your dividing element - in this case, your H3 (Heading 3) .

    Hello. Sorry. I am new at WordPress. Can you give me a little more detail?
    1. How is that 'top-aligned' set?
    2. I can't find the 'paragraph' in my stylesheet. Can you help me locate it?
    3. Can you give me the syntax for the clear:both. I tried it and it dod not work. Do I place it on the page in the h3 tag between each entry?
    Thanks,
    Linda

    This would all be done in your template's stylesheet, and I have posted the exact syntax needed.

    "top aligned" is not set, but floating the images to the left as they are do the same thing.

    Sounds like you need to learn CSS. There are lots of good, free resources online, do some searches.

    Yeah. I got the clear:both to work. Thanks.
    I still can't find the paragraph setting/definition in my stylesheet. I can see the paragraph tag in firebug but I don't know where it came from. Can you give me a hint? Thank you. Linda

    Your stylesheet may not have any specific settings for a paragraph. You can just add one though, like this

    p {
    text-align:justify;
    }
