CSS Float Property - Floating Images
The CSS float property has mainly been designed and introduced to let text float around images. It was later used by web designers as a way to created layouts. It was never intended to be used so though. Today, however, the CSS float property is widely used for CSS float-based layouts.
Please refer to another article to see how the CSS float property can be used to float text around images. The article is called, "CSS Float Property - Clearing Floats - Float Nearly Everything". The article represents a typical image gallery and there you can see that the images have been floated to left. As a result, the text is floating around the images.
