Layout Graphics with Text
This is part of Chapter 3 of the book Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft FrontPage 2003 in 24 Hours by Rogers Cadenhead, published November 2003 by Sams Publishing
The first time you add a graphic to a section of text in FrontPage, you're likely to be disappointed in how it looks. Text flows awkwardly from the lower edge of the graphic, leaving a lot of whitespace around it.
Selecting a new wrapping style for the graphic corrects the problem. The wrapping style is a setting that determines how the graphic should be displayed in relation to adjacent text and other content on the page.
To choose a wrapping style for a graphic, follow these steps:
Figure 3.4 shows two Web pages that are identical in every way but one: The photo of jazz artist Joshua Redman has been set to a different wrapping style.
The wrapping style of a graphic determines only how it is displayed next to adjacent text.
To add a blank line before or after a graphic, place the cursor to the left or right of the graphic and press Enter to insert a paragraph break. To insert a smaller line break instead, press Shift+Enter.
Another way to customize the placement of a graphic is to use its alignment setting.
This setting, which is similar to the wrapping style, determines how a graphic will be lined up next to other graphics and text that are close to each other in height.
To set a graphic's alignment, follow these steps:
If using wrapping styles and alignment isn't sufficient to achieve the page layout you'd like, you'll learn how to accomplish more sophisticated positioning in the next hour, "Lay Out a Page with Tables."
