Fw: Re: tables won't float

Phil,
 
In case this response was not what you were looking for, I tried 
 
<table border=2 style="float: left;"> 
<tr><td>Left table 1</td></tr> 
</table>

Maybe the default value for clear property [1] isn't coherent among
implementations...? Try forcing it to a value (apparently
"clear:none"
if you'd expect the table displayed right). But hey, I'm just guessing
- this may be due to multiple things such as small font alignment
differences etc. - it will all depend on your current page content,
unless you are experimenting with a very simple example (just a table
and an image, for instance).


Hope this helps,
