There is a very nice blog entry in Vasudevaservice.com about how we could use CSS classes in reStructured Text. On this site there is an align-left class to float our images to the left and a similar one to the right, now I'm wondering will reStructured text do the needful....
So lets type the following reStructured Text for our image:
.. figure:: /gallery/d/162213-2/DSCF0615.JPG :alt: Yaaaaaaaaay! :figclass: align-left
and see what happens:
As you can see, the image very nicely sits to the left.
You can view this image and more in the very nice photo gallery by Bipin Larkin from New York....
