Subject: Clearing a margin

Please excuse me if I'm confusing NetScape extensions with orthodox HTML. I
understand how to align text next to an image (for example <img align=left
src="images/smileyface.gif"> followed by text) but how does one align
subsequent text to fall below the image, flush with the left margin? I've
tried using a <clear> attribute, but either I used it incorrectly or it
didn't work. Currently, I've been making do with blank spaces and <br>
commands beneath the aligned text until it clears the image and I can start
text again at the left margin. This can't be right.

Am I guity of NetScape-centrism? Is there an answer to my query?
