ermh.... ok let me rephrase that..
remove the spaces between "<" or ">" and the text.
after each < pic id= > you must add < /pic > The text after < pic id= > and before < /pic > will be shown in the photo frame.

You need the closing tag also for all the formatting stuff except the ads. You don't necessarily have to add any text, but it would help.
