Hello,

Trying to implement floats

From the CSS2 spec:

9.5 Floats

"....The top of the floated box is aligned with the top of the current line
box...."

Looking at IE and Netscape, it looks like the top of the float is aligned
with the BOTTOM of the current line box...??

And:

"Any content in the current line before a floated box is reflowed in the
first available line on the other side of the float."

Looking at IE and Netscape, it looks like text that is before the float (in
the document) will 'always' be BEFORE the float when rendering.. making the
statement above a never-case issue. ??

thanks,
