That's what I figured... :-/

That too, is what I figured, however I also figured that since 
ApacheCon US 2004 is Nov 13-17, I could just fudge it, and 'make it 
so'. (I didn't want to spend too much time on it).

Two other solution(s) I can think of:

- temporarily switch to an OOo format and include the image and 
description side-by-side in a TABLE (use the nifty OpenOffice.org 
plugin)

or two:

stick it in a table:

<p>
<p>

<a name="N10017"></a><a name="apachecon"></a>
<table>
<tr>
<th colspan="2">
<div class="section">
<h3 class="underlined_10">Come to ApacheCon US 2004</h3>
</div>
</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<a class="external" href="http://apachecon.com/2004/US/">
           <img alt="apachecon 2004 logo" height="100" 
src="http://ApacheCon.Com/2004/US/logos/logo_only.gif" width="170" 
align="left" hspace="10">
         </a>
</td>
<td>
         <a class="external" 
href="http://apachecon.com/2004/US/">ApacheCon US 2004</a>
           (13-17 November 2004). ApacheCon is the conference for all
           things Apache. Come along and learn about a range of new
           technologies, meet some Apache folks and share the knowledge.
           See more information about
          <a 
href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/conferences.html">Apache 
Conferences</a>.
       </p>
</p><div>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
<br clear="left"/>

or 3:
Re-purpose your valuable time by creating a new DTD which supports 
placing the @align="left" for this one-time use.
