page layout - Wrapping text around photos

Travel Forums System Talk page layout - Wrapping text around photos

Is there any way to add some acceptable HTML code the will allow for the wrapping of text around photos.
The huge white space left with the default format breaks up the appearance of the page. In the original .html there was a simple align="left" that would bring the copy to the top right corner of the image rather than the default bottom right corner.

Hey William,

This question slipped through the cracks (at least for me; didn't see it before just now - sorry about that). Take a look at the instructions in this old thread on how you can do this with CSS. The only problem with that being that it's a bit of an "all or nothing" deal; can't select just a single photo for which this would apply, and then not have it apply to other photos.

Still, the overall effect works quite well, and there's a lot you can do with adding your own CSS tweaks to your blog. Take a look for example at TLWH's blog, which has both floated images and captions.

Thank You Sander,

I appreciate the guidance. I was able to bring my text around my thumbnails as you suggested and while the new command does the job it also creates some arbitrary changes in layout. I will use some white space blanks to fill up the gaps. I have been stuck in NOTEPAD for the last decade and using CSS takes a bit of getting used to.
