The img directive allows for specifying an
align parameter -- which is of limited usability as the image is
<p><img ...></p>. That's at least what I see on
http://www.bddebian.com:8888/~hurd-web/hurd/status/. On the other
hand, CSS is supposed to be used instead, I guess. (But how... I forgot
almost of my CSS foo again it seems.) --tschwinge
I've edited the URL you provided to demonstrate this -- hope you don't mind! I've also added an inline, right-aligned image to this page. -- Jon
Contrary to all of the above, html does not care about P tags when floating an image to the left or right via align. Proof: http://kitenet.net/~joey/pics/toomanypicturesofjoey/, where the image is in its own paragraph but still floats. Also, I re-modified a local copy of the hurd page to enclose the image in a P, and it still floats.
Tested with Chromium and Firefox. --Joey
Uh, sorry for not confirming what I supposed to be with looking into the relevant standard. It just seemed too obvious to me that the closure of
<p>...</p>would confine whatever embedded stuff may be doing. (Meaning, I didn't expect that the img's alignment would propagate to the p's and would thus be visible from the outside.)
I confirm (Firefox, Ubuntu jaunty) that your picture page is being shown correctly -- thus I suppose that there's a buglet in our CSS scripts again...
