Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Breaking lines around an image, part of XHTML and HTML Essential Training.
So in our last lesson we looked at how to float an image, so that the text wraps…around the image and you can float an image to either side.…Here we have our example from that lesson where the text is flowing around the…image. We are just going to tweak this down here and bring this up a little bit…so that we can show you how to break the text around the image if you need to do that.…So here is our paragraph and we see our image here with the align=left that…makes the image float to the left and the text is flowing around it.…
Let's say that you wanted to break this text say after this period here and…you wanted that Jez is a Gibson L6-S to start on the line after the image and…not just right here.…We know that the br tag will break the text.…Go ahead and insert a br tag right here, br, and you will notice that we have…the little shorthand notation there for the fact that br is not a container and…it doesn't have a separate end tag.…So we have this little shorthand notation that allows that to work in XHTML.…
