[Pro] HTML text basic question

HI,

Doing great with Freeway Pro but have used graphic text almost always. Now using HTML text and little educated…

I have an HTML box and I just want to have in the upper right corner a graphic and directly to the left of it some text.

I can move the graphic to the upper corner, but when I space with the space bar the text over to come right up to the graphic, the spaces do not appear. I know why in HTML.

But how do I space my 3 words over to the right to have it up against my graphic? Is there a key combination? I can;t right align b/c that is where the graphic is?

make sense?

like this kinda

                                   WORD 1 WORD 2 WORD 3 (graphic)

thanks,

Barry

If you insert a graphic into a flow of HTML text, you can position it using the Align picker, and control its spacing away from other objects using the Margin control. As you have noticed, HTML text collapses all spaces into a single space (and by space, the HTML spec refers to ANY sort of whitespace – line-breaks, tabs, multiple spaces). There is a character called the non-breaking space, which you get in Freeway by pressing Option-Space. That will not break, and you can stack up many of them to get a defined space between two text elements. But you should avoid doing this, for the same reason that you don’t center the headline on your page by adding spaces to the left: The Web is not a typewriter! If you want to align something, you use the controls provided to do that. If you want a tablular layout (and you have tablular content, like a spreadsheet) you use a table.

No, use the align option on the inline image to shift the image to the right, and the margin settings to space it away from the rest of the text. My point was: Use a table if you have tabular data. Don’t use spaces to align anything, ever.

PS: You could use a background image instead. Set it to align top-right and no-repeat, and then your text can float over it if it has to.
