    I want to put this chat icon on the right side of the 'start a conversation" in line with the wording. Can i do this via CSS as apposed to HTML? if so, how? I cannot get it to appear inline with HTML.

    <xen:if is="{$canStartConversation}">
                                    <dl><dd><a href="{xen:link 'conversations/add', '', 'to={$user.username}'}">{xen:phrase start_conversation}</a></dd></dl>
                                </xen:if>&nbsp;<IMG SRC="http://www.mysite.com/community/styles/images/images/chat1.png" ALT="Convo" WIDTH=20 HEIGHT=20>

    Add a custom class to it, like so (you can make it whatever you want):
    <a class="convo-icon" href="{xen:link 'conversations/add', '', 'to={$user.username}'}">{xen:phrase start_conversation}</a>
    Then use a pseudo class:
    .convo-icon:after { content: url(pathtoyour/image.png); }
    And you can adjust it from there. Should work, haven't tested it.
