style sheet question

When setting up the various text styles in a style sheet, I use the *p class="name"* for the different regular text styles I want to use. The problem is that the paragraph tag automatically inserts a blank line. So if I want to put a short descriptive sentence on the next line immediately below a link, for example, there is a blank line inserted and then the sentence begins on the following line.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a different method than that will eliminate this extra blank line -- such as using the line break tag in regular html.
thanks

Just include display:inline; in the style tag of your class or <p> tag, that'll get rid of the extra blank line. Alternatively use <span> tag or something similar.
