    • or in a new row below;
    a previous object.

    Do not insert custom HTML in your page unless you have at least a basic understanding of how HTML works. Since your HTML will be placed between an itsmysite.com header and footer, please do not use <HTML>, <TITLE>, <BODY>, META redirects or similar tags. Errors in your HTML code, especially relating to table tags, may affect other parts of your page and cause unexpected results. Please note that itsmysite.com can not provide subscribers with HTML technical support.
