Float and Clear
Hello, In the video "Style the image captions" Nick use the property clear to avoid the footer to appear next t one of the image gallery and stay at its normal position - the footer. The property float has been used for the unoerdere list element (ul) via the ID "gallery". This element belongs to the section element that is outside the footer. My question is : why the footer is affected by this "float" property while it's not among the elements that belong to the "gallery" ID? Cheers

The float property doesn't effect eliments before it, However elements that come after it may move up for example a paragraph that follows a floated eliment will wrap itself beside it.
OK I think i get it. Thanks Cherie
