Blockquotes and floats

  • Hi,
    I’m trying to figure out how to get my blockquotes to indent correctly when they are next to a float:left.

    Here is an example of what I’m talking about:
    http://www.brunildo.org/test/floatFlow.html
    Notice the yellow float, and the flush blockquote next to it. How do I get the blockquote to behave normally?

    If this is a known bug that I’m just unaware of, please let me know.

    Thanks
    Chuck

  • Float it right to put it alongside the left floated element. Clear them to drop them below it.

    Thanks for the reply, but that didn’t work. I floated the blockquote both left and right. It just ended up at the bottom of my page.

    Still looking.

    Left and right floated elements exist on the web everywhere. What about it didn’t work? Why don’t you give me a real time example, like your own site URL?

    I’m working on a template for a friend of mine. Here is the URL:IDPG

    When I changed the blockquote from

    blockquote
    	{
    	  font-size: 0.85em;
    	  margin: 15px 30px 0 10px;
    	  padding-left: 20px;
    	  border-left: 5px solid #ddd;
    	}

    to…

    blockquote
    	{
    	  float: left; or float:right;
    	  font-size: 0.85em;
    	  margin: 15px 30px 0 10px;
    	  padding-left: 20px;
    	  border-left: 5px solid #ddd;
    	}

    The blocked text just shows up at the very bottom of the page. I used Firefox to view the page.

    Thanks for the help.

    Anyone?

    You have to decide either floated left or right or just use a different division for an opposite floated blockquote.

    I’m at work and we just have this craptacular version of IE6. I’ll need to wait until I get home to check it out in FF. But I think there are other issues, e.g., the sidebar. So I’ll defer any further observation until I can get on your site with “firehawg.” 🙂

    Also correct your typo over the right sidebar. 😉
