View Full Version : Sinking DIV (i.e. not floating...)

I want two images to float on the right hand side of my page while the text wraps around and underneath it. I thought the best way would be to place the images in a DIV and float that, but it remains glued to the left of the page. Here is the code I am using:

<div style="width: 200px; float: right;">
<img src="image_1.jpg" width="200" height="396"><br>
<img src="image_2.jpg" width="200" height="154">
</div>

<p>This is the text I want to wrap around the images....
</p>

What am I doing wrong?

<img src="image_2.jpg" width="200" height="154">
This is the text I want to wrap around the images....

A little unclear what you want...

<img style="float:right;" src="image_1.jpg" width="200" height="396"><br>
<img style="float:right;" src="image_2.jpg" width="200" height="154">
<p>This is the text I want to wrap around the images....This is the text I want to wrap around the images....This is the text I want to wrap around the images....This........

I tried it and it works, try adding a border to the div so you can see it's edges and get a better idea of what it's really doing.

Thanks guys.

It turns out this is a cross-browser thing. The code works fine in every browser except the one I happened to be using at the time, namely the preview window in Dreamweaver. Sorry if I've wasted your time.
