Exploring Floats

  • We are going to explore the CSS property of float, and take a look at how to create web page layouts using floats
  • We explore the float concept using boxes on the page to see how floating various page elements can affect other content on the page
  • The boxes are already set up on the page and contain different background colors so you can tell them apart
  • Assign the float property to the various boxes to see what happens to the boxes when the float property is applied
  • You can float left or right, it is like super glue to the side of the page
  • It is called a float because it is floating vertically on the page
  • If we place content before a floated element on the page, the floated element will move down in the browser
  • Use this page to explore the float property
