    styling img, iframe, and post text independently (the_content) ?

    1.

    so my first attempt was to use custom fields. this way, the client would add in an image and then in another field - add the text.

    then i would echo out the info in the loop --

    this was working great. until i noticed - that when there was no image... (mainly in safari) there would be a -box ?- to tell me there was nothing returned by img src... (because the echo returned blank)

    can i use fields and avoid this problem ???

    2.

    i started to question if this was a good idea... using custom fields for main content... what if in the future this is a problem...

    so i went back to using the_content...

    inserting the img iframe(vimeo) and text all in the standard wp field. this skirts the ? box issue... (which i would like to resolve) --- but then i can't find a way to style them independently ...

    for example... i want the text with margins of 20px left and right...

    .entry p and .entry img don't work... because i think that everything gets wrapped in p. and even if i can remove that --- i can't have my client obligated to wrap their text in p everypost.

    any ideas oh glorious wordpress people ???
