I have an image style that includes centering. I have noticed that the only way to get it to work is to use it in code view. In design view, when I highlight the image, it only selects that image and not the tags. Thus, it does not center. In other words, if the <p><p/> tags are not highlighted, the image will not center...and the only way to highlight the tags is in code view...at least this is what I am seeing. Am I missing something? Is there a simple way to choose the image in design veiw and also choose the tags?

No. That is one of the problems with using design view—it can be very difficult making accurate selections, especially between adjacent elements. The UI assumes that you want to be either in one element or the other. It is much, much easier to use the Quick Tag Selector in code view, or the Select Tag icon on the Code view toolbar.
Making precise selections is one of the least useful aspects of design view.

I assumed there was some sort of problem like that... Very strange that design veiw is limited that way...

Actually, the Quick Tag Selector works fine in Design View also. In the View menu, make sure that "Quick Tag Selector" is checked. Then, click where you want in the Design pane, click on the tag that you want at the top of the tab, and the entire tag is selected. You can confirm this by viewing the page in Split View (which is highly recommended anyway). Just another way to use EW - I don't use Design View, but generally work in Split View. If you do use Design View, be very careful about moving things around, and about creating styles, as you can create a real mess. However, the simple answer to your question is, "yes, there is a simple way."
