text wrap around image

Hi,
I need help in setting up a page where the text wraps around an image.
Right now, I am using table, with text in one <td> and the image in the
adjacent <td>. The problem is when the text is longer than the height of
the image, I get all this dead space below the image with the text just
going vertically down in its own <td>.
Can I use style sheet to position the image and the text so that the
text can start taking up the whole page starting from the bottom of the
image?

Hi Xerxes,
Can I use style sheet to position the image and the text so that the
text can start taking up the whole page starting from the bottom of the
image?


try something similar:

<p>
Paragraph 1 - will be completely above the image.
</p>
<div style="float:ri ght;">
<img ... />
</div>
<p>
Paragraph 2 - will begin beside the image and ev. float under it.
</p>

HTH,

Paul

In your css:

p img { float: right; }

In your html:

<p><img src="x.jpg" alt="xx">lots of text.....
</p>

You can add margins to the image if you want.

My images are fixed in size and can't be redone. Many of them are tall and narrow. How can I wrap text so that the text starts on the right of the image at a level with the top of the image. So that resizing the browser window will cause the text to wrap below the image.
