CSS CSS Layout CSS Layout Techniques Float

Float not working, ideas?

Hi,

My attempted copying of what is being done in this video does not lead to the text wrapping around the image, though I believe I copied correctly--maybe someone can catch an error or otherwise give some guidance?

HTML:

<img
          src="https://i0.wp.com/css-tricks.com/wp-content/csstricks-uploads/thebox.png?resize=570%2C248"
          alt="illustration of the CSS box model"
          class="small-img"
        />

CSS:

.small-img {
  float: left;
  width: 300px;
  margin: 0 1rem 1rem 0;
}

Thanks!

Brendan

There's no actual text here. The only thing that looks like text is actually part of the image.

Yeah, I guess I'm not sure that was the issue...for some reason in the later lesson on media queries, when i moved it within a media query, it worked 🤷🏻‍♂️

Thanks for feedback though!
