|Layout help - placing text to the right of an unknown size image|
CSS (of course!)
| 12:24 pm on Aug 21, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I have a whole blank page, no side menus, and need to do this:
- picture of unknown sixe on left
- description on right
Sounds easy right?
Here's my promblem:
I need the text to be a certain width, say 250px but can't just float it to the right as on larger rez monitors it will look very poor.
Currently I'm thinking 2 divs, one for the pic and one as a container floated to the right. The float right will containg another div for the text floated left...
Anyone come up with a more elegant solution?

You read my mind Nick, I am assuming you will put absolute postioning on the the text div since it has to be a fixed width. I dont see any other way to do it.

Yes, but I can't absolutely position it as I don't know how large the img is....
Think I'm going to have to position the img right of the text instead....

If you make it like this:
Would that not work?

That's the way I was originally going but the container div is only as wide as it's contents (the text div) so I can't float it or position it without specifying a sidth for the container.
....and I can't do that as I don't know the img sixe...

Its not possible to just resize all the imgs the same? I mena this seems like alot of work, and not going to be very consistant.

<div class="image" style="float: left">[image here]</div>
<div class="caption" style="width:250px;">[text here]</div>
<div class="shim" style="clear: both;"></div>
