IMG Tag Bug

CityDesk 2.x (I found this in 2.0.5Beta) generates the image tags like this:

<IMG style="MARGIN-LEFT: 5px" height=89
alt="Gayla Brumfield, Owner/Broker, Colonial Real Estate, Clovis, New Mexico."
src="PTMFOG0000000284.jpg" width=72 align=right border=0>

This is different than the syntax used by CityDesk 1.0 and messes up image display on Netscape 4.7 browsers (Netscape does not know how to deal with it and usually displays the image to the left, but sometimes displays the image higher in the page).  Display of CityDesk1.0 generated site displayed fine on Netscape 4.7.

Remove the "style="MARGIN-LEFT: 5px" and the image displays correctly to the right as was specified in CityDesk.

CityDesk should make make its image syntax as generic as possible and allow overriding using CSS.

Agreed.

I'd suggest that  CD generate some simple working default code for all the various pre-built functions for the non-coding users *and allow me to rewrite it to what I want* when it doesn't do what I want...

(which will be 'almost immediately' :-).

Yes, I suppose this could be a support nightmare. But it could be managed, with careful disclaimers.
