that's what I usually use, but I'm looking for something so I can see it.

The HTML on the cache page can be buggy at times, and the way it auto converts some stuff can really mess with your layout. Sometimes just adding an extra tag at the end of the description can fix those types of display problems. Try just tossing in a <p> tag after your <img> right at the end of your description and see if it fixes it for you. Also make sure that all your tags are closed, it usually auto does that for you, but it can close them in the wrong locations.

1) HTML Builders often use a lot of css, which groundspeak will remove
2) put a <br clear="all"/> after the image.

I wanted to gussy up my cache page for the Blitz 2010 this year. Last year I just used plain text and typed it in the boxes where I could type and it came up pretty plain of course.
This year, I used a program which I already had, Front Page, which is a web site creator program. I am sure there lots of others out there, even for free.
I designed my cache page in Front page, and then flipped to HTML view and copied it to the clip board. Then I pasted it into my cache page, making sure that the HTML button was clicked on. With a few slight fixes it came up looking pretty good. It included BOLD, color, pictures etc.

I'm using a program called KompoZer, it's basically the same. All you do is create the design with text, images etc., then copy paste its html to the cache page.
Makes it look awesome, and can help you win for cache page creativity!
