Just testing...

John AdamsThis isn't a post about John Adams, I'm just following, in my half-educated way, an interesting tutorial on using CSS to float an image to the right of a block of text. Is 'floating" an image the same as "aligning" it to the left or right? Beats me. (As usual, it's just assumed that one already knows various things.) Well, it's different in one way´┐ŻALIGN doesn't let you have both a margin and the text-wrap.

Why didn't they have this stuff when I was young and had huge amounts of time to fill learning arcane arts? All that time wasted on Alchemy because there was no XHTML...

And why is there a white area around the picture? I didn't add the padding, so it shouldn't be there...Ah, never mind, the white is part of the picture itself...

Oh well: "Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." --John Adams
