.html, how do I...?

Please refer to this web page for my questions:


FYI, I use just plain .html code made with Notepad.  How do I:

1)  In the first picture, my code looks like this:

<td><A HREF="Wells_Gardner_6101_hr.jpg"><IMG SRC="Wells_Gardner_6101.jpg"
WIDTH="512" HEIGHT="384" ALT="WG6101" align="middle"></A></td>
<td><---Wells Gardner 6101, your basic color XY, used in most Atari vector

How do I bold and make a larger font size , just the first 3 words, i.e.,
"Wells Gardner 6101"?

2)  My code for the second picture:

<td><A HREF="Electrohome_G05_801_hr.jpg"><IMG SRC="Electrohome_G05_801.jpg"
WIDTH="512" HEIGHT="384" ALT="G05_801" align="middle"></A></td>
<td><---Electrohome G05_801 black & white XY monitor, used in all Lunar
Lander and some early version Asteroids games.  This uses different voltages
(and consequently a slightly different pin configuration) than other
Electrohome black & white XY monitors.</td>

2A)  How do I split the text portion of the above to start the second
sentence, i.e., the sentence that begins "This uses different voltages..."
to begin on a new line?
2B)  How do I get a blank line before starting the second sentence on a new
line (i.e., put a blank line after the after the end of the previous

3)  Look just after the 4'th picture.  The single line of text before the
5'th picture.  My code looks like this:

<!-- <td><A HREF="Electrohome_G08_003_hr.jpg"><IMG
SRC="Electrohome_G08_003.jpg" WIDTH="512" HEIGHT="384" ALT="G08_003"
align="middle"></A></td> -->
<td>(pictures coming soon!)</td>
<td><---Electrohome G08_003, used in most Sega color vector games (Star
Trek, Zektor, Space Fury, Eliminator, Tac Scan).</td>

(I have the line with the picture commented out because I don't have the
picture ready yet).  But without the picture, the line gets lost between the
other pictures.  What I'd like to do is have an empty square box the size of
the other pictures with the words "(pictures coming soon!)" in there.  That
way, it will stand out.  As it is now, if someone is quickly viewing that
web page, that line will be easily skipped and not noticed.

Thanks much you guys (by the way, I use "guys" as a generic term for men AND
women) for your help.  I've posted previously with "how do I" posts and your
suggestions have been helpful and incorporated into my code.  I'm a slow
learner, but I prefer to say, "slow but sure"!  Thanks,

Oh, Joe where to start! You need to do a little basic tutorial on HTML.

In your stylesheet (yep, you need to research that) or inside a STYLE
element within your HEAD...

.MyProduct { font-size: 1.2em; font-style: bold; }

And markup:

<span class="MyProduct">Wells Gardner 6101</span> ...

Same why you do in a word processor, use paragraphs,

    Electrohome G05_801 black ...
    This uses different voltages...

Yes but you also commented out the table data element, the <td></td>
pair! Now your table is boogered! One table row with just one cell
whereas all the others have two. Just comment out the image!
         <!-- comment out the image
         <img src=...
    <td> ...

Take care,

Take out the comment.  Since the picture isn't there the browser will
display a blank box of the specified size.
