      Weird... I have blank lines between paragraphs when I do that.

      No, the <p> tag is intended for delimiting paragraphs in body text. BUT
      paragraphs CAN contain images. For instance, lots of chat & blog sites,
      and IM/e-mail clients, nowadays will replace the traditional
      character-based smileys with pictures embedded in the text. That's
      perfectly valid HTML.
      Actually, the most peculiar thing about this tag and its siblings, the
      <h1>...<h6> tags, is that they are block elements, but they cannot
      contain other body elements. That is, they are not "full-fledged" block

      Well, I assumed that you wanted the text _below_ the images (as opposed
      to beginning on the right of the image). If you take out the <br> and
      the image is not wide enough to fill up the provided area, the text will
      begin to the right of the image instead of below it.
