Upgraded to WP 2.6, now Pictures and Text don't wrap properly (6 posts)

    Just upgraded this week to 2.6. I published my first post today since the upgrade and I cannot get the text to wrap around my pictures properly. I've tried left, I've tried right and it places the pictures as though no alignment/wrapping was selected.

    Here's the page:

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I have since figured out what is causing the problem, but not an effective solution.

    I compared the HTML code of my new post (WP2.6 generated) with that of an older (WP2.5.1 generated) post. I discovered that with 2.5.1 the code "float: left;" and "float: right;" appeared in the HTML view of the post. These snippets of code are not appearing for the pictures that I placed and formatted with WP 2.6. After I manually added this bit of code for each picture, all was good.

    Now the question becomes: "Why does WP2.6 no longer automatically place this bit of code into the HTML when working with pictures?"

    Does it expect that it resides elsewhere (maybe in the alignleft/alignright functions in a style sheet somewhere?

    I apologize if I've butchered some of the HTML details, I'm new to HTML coding.

    I also had the same problem. How did you go about fixing it?

    Thanks Otto! I should have gone down further when I didn't see it answered in the numbered solutions.
