That spacing you see is a paragraph break versus a line break.
Since the formatting is different (center vs. left) it has to put the title
in one paragraph and the list in a second paragraph.
That is correct html and Pub 2000 is doing it properly.
If you didn't change formatting it could all be in one paragraph.
You do want to use as few text boxes as possible, see -
You could get around it by using separate text boxes, but the output would
likely be an image of the two text boxes rather then actual html text.
Publisher creates an image of anything it can't reproduce in html due to the
way html works.
Version 2002 and 2003 are all the more likely to create an image in order to
more accurately render the page layout and also use newer techniques that
expand on hmtl (which is where browser compatibility comes in to play) so
they may handle the same thing differently.
