- The "float" parameter in CSS allows an element to be pushed to the left or right, allowing other elements to wrap around it.
- A floated element will move as far to the left or right as it can. Usually this means all the way to the left or right of the containing element.
- The elements after the floating element will flow around it.
- The elements before the floating element will not be affected
- If you place several floating elements after each other, they will float next to each other if there is room.
Turning the CSS Float Off - Clear attribute
- Elements after the floating element will flow around it. To avoid this, use the clear property.
