Layout problem with tables in text flow

I can insert tables in the text flow, with what I thought was a neat
solution to keep pix and captions together, see here:

http://www.farasuto.org/fauna/birds.php

They work just fine, the problem comes when I have two tables close together
see here:

http://www.farasuto.org/Forest/hydrology.php

They will not overlap vertically as ordinary graphic boxes will, to look
like this:

Any suggestions ???

Works fine here. Try reducing the width of your elements. Inline
floated elements will never overlap one another, but they will slip up
beside one another. Also, check to see if you set the Clear property
to anything on either of these. Try leaving the Clear property unset
on both your right and left-floated inline tables.

Thanks, but here I Safari the two tables where stacked and did not sit
alongside each other as you suggest I’ve ret the clear to non and they fit
snugly together with the text flowing between.

Cheers again.

Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I didn’t mean that your page looked fine – I
meant that when I duplicated your layout – leaving room for the two
tables to coexist side-by-side – then they did slip up next to one
another when the intervening text allowed them to do so.

Clear is hard to visualize. Clear Left means “if there is anything
above this element that is set to Float Left, then don’t let this
element rise above that element’s bottom position”. Likewise and
opposite would be Clear Right. And if you set Clear Both, that means
that the item should stay clear of any type of floated element.

So much to learn and terminology that seems to contradict itself, RTFM I
'spose.

And in the spirit of other contributors when you’re in the area there’s a
beer on the bar and a warm welcome waiting, thanks ;~}}
