  <div class="desc">The Cities/Area list at left is our primary focus. Each of these pages will provide you with local home and area pictures, macro &amp; micro valuation charts, 13 year median sale chart and a 11 year rental chart. The macro and micro charts provide you with instant dollars ranges based on home square feet scale on the bottom of the chart. If you haven't looked at the <em>Start Here - Insight On Market Value</em> page this will give you an idea of things to look for.
This provides you with an excellent starting point when you're looking to sell or purchase a home in any of these areas. The slide show above is comprised of pictures from all of these areas.<br /> If you would like us to prepare a similar chart for your home or the home you are looking to purchase please contact us at: <a class="test" href=""><span class="email">Properties With Style.</span></a>

  <!-- eND Footer-->
<!-- eND Maincontent-->

The slide show needs to be above the </head> and <body> section of the page.

I’m trying to understand how to place all #maincontent correctly and float the text to the left and then UNDER the slide show picture within the #maincontent div.

My menu cannot be under the #maincontent as it is a float left item.

Any ideas?

Thanks . . . Rick

As usual, a link to the page in question would be most helpful. Failing that, we at least need the CSS to go with the above HTML.

Silly me . . .

If I’ve understood you correctly, you want the text to flow around the slideshow.

Move your header div from here:

<div class="header">
		<img src="css/images/rsmdining.jpg" name="slide" width="470" height="250" alt="picture slide show"/>
[COLOR="#FF0000"]<script type="text/javascript">[/COLOR] 

to here:

[COLOR="#FF0000"]<div id="maincontent">[/COLOR]
<div class="header">
		<img src="citysnapshots_files/rrpalm.jpg" name="slide" alt="picture slide show" height="250" width="470">
  [COLOR="#FF0000"]<div class="desc">The Cities/Area list at left is our primary focus.[/COLOR] 

It needs to be inside the same container as the text you want to flow round it.


That really worked well - perfectly actually.

Thanks much TechnoBear

Glad I could help. :slight_smile:

TechnoBear - I spoke to soon.

This change somehow prevents the slide show from working.

Just the header picture shows on the page. the slide show does not start now.

Ideas . . . ?

thanks . . . Rick

Corrected . . .

I moved my ,menu up to the top of the html page under the <link type= . . . etc.>

Under the menu I placed the <div id=“maincontent”>

Under that the slide show begins . . .

then the header picture which starts the main slideshow

then the rest of the page content.

It all flows well now.

Thanks for you assistance.
