  1. I love this article! Thanks so much for explaining how to do this. I tend to struggle with images although I know HTML, I’ve not use float very often, so this was an excellent introduction to some of it’s very useful properties!


  2. Handy stuff. I tend to just use ‘align=right’ tucked in my image tag since that was how I learnt to do it way back when (HTML 2.0, maybe?) but I’m going to shift to use the style to do it, probably by adding a new style to my css. Cheers.

  3. You’re welcome, Lubel. :)

    Changing Blogger templates can be a headache, especially if you use a template that’s not meted out officially by Blogger. Information about what widgets you have is stored in the template text itself, so replacing a template tends to mean needing to manually replace the widgets.

    There are ways around that, but they tend to be ugly.
