If you want to start an image in the middle | of the paragraph and have the rest of the paragraph flow around it | you should use IMG with ALIGN = left or right, as per Netscape. But <IMG> can't have captions. Shouldn't <IMG> be phased out in favour of the more general <FIG>? I think letting <IMG> have functionality <FIG> lacks is a "design bug". Note: the browser should feel free to relocate the <FIG> to the end or beginning of the (enclosing) paragraph if flowing the text around it is not feasible/appropriate, much the same way figures in books float around. For <FIG>'s less than half the screen width, _I_ would prefer it if the browser put it in the middle of the stream of text. Kjetil T.
