    Well, its always good to go to the source: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1#floating-elements.

    Is there something in particular your having trouble with?

    Do you have any questions in particular? The float property is essentially the same thing as the align arbutuses on images: it displaces on object and wraps all the text around it {http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS1#floating-elements}. In CSS floats can be applied to all objects instead of just images and tables.

    ~~Hope This Helps

    Mea culpa. I am being a bad, lazy developper. I was hopind someone would explain me what it was used for because I didn't feel ike searching...

    But now you've made me feel bad so I'm gonna look.

    It's all your fault!

    P.S. : You will be forgiven if you provide me with an informative answer.
