I want my text to continue down the side of an image as it would in a book, not have just one line of text next to it. Also, how do you get the text to go back to the proper margin afterwards?

Note: This is supported by most browsers, but not all. Your layout will not appear the way you plan, but the content will not be affected.


The trick is to set your images with either ALIGN="LEFT" or ALIGN="RIGHT". In either situation, the image comes <B>before</B> the text! Be certain to always end with the proper <BR> tag- even if a <P> is after the text.
  • <BR CLEAR="LEFT"> is used after the text in a left aligned image to clear the margin back.
  • <BR CLEAR="RIGHT"> is used after the text in a right aligned image.
  • <BR CLEAR="ALL"> takes care of all situations, feel free to use this one and not worry about it!

example

This paragraph is a nice left aligned one. The image will appear on the left side of the page with the text wrapping around next to the image, until there is enough text to get under it.

This is a line of text all by itself, on the left side!

This paragraph is a nice right aligned one. The image will appear on the right side of the page with the text wrapping around next to the image, until there is enough text to get under it.
Here is another line by itself!
