Text menu left of centered image...

Recommended Posts

To Whom it May Concern,

 
I am an artist who is fairly proficient with the Adobe Creative Suite, and I have designed my website with Dreamweaver.
 
I just need to do this simple thing - which I can't seem to figure out. I've trailed and errored for hours now, and I've read though forums. All I need to do is figure out how to center an image on the page, and have a text menu to the left of it. What is happening, however, is either text menu is below the centered image, or text is correctly aligned the left, but the image floats all the way right (and is not centered). 
 
I'd be so appreciative on some guidance. It seems like this should be an easy thing to do, but for some reason I can't grasp it.
 
Thank you so very much,
 
Lindsey
 
 
THIS IS THE CODE:
 

<style>

#navigation li {
    font: "Helvetica Neue";
    list-style-type: none;
    }

#navigation a {
    color: #000;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    
#navigation a:hover {
    font-style: italic;
    color:#F0F;
    }

img {
    float: right;
    max-width: 32%;
    height: auto;
    }


</style>

 

<body leftmargin="8">

 

<img src="../Cosmos JPGS/01_Filowitz_TheCosmos.jpg" width="400" height="568" alt=""/></a> 

 

<div id="navigation">  

<div style="width: 200px">  
    <ul>
      <li>   
       
        <div align="justify" id="LindseyFilowitz"><strong><a href="../index.html">Lindsey Filowitz</a></strong><a href="file:///Macintosh HD/Users/lindsey/Documents/NEW WEBSITE/www.lindseyfilowitz.com/home.html"></a></div>
      </li>
      
      <div align="justify"><br />
      
        <br />
      </div><font size="2">
      
      <li><a href="../The Cosmos/TheCosmos1.html">The Cosmos<br> brought us<br> together...</a></li>
      <br />
      
   <a href="../The Likeness/TheLikeness_01.html">The Likeness</a>
     <br>
      <br>
      
      <li><span><a href="../No One Cares.../NoOneCares1.html">No One Cares<br>

        Way You Look<br>
        Than We Do</a></span><a href="file:///Macintosh HD/Users/lindsey/Documents/NEW WEBSITE/www.lindseyfilowitz.com/No One Cares.../NoOneCares1.html"><br>
        </a>


        <br />
      </li>
      <li><a href="../Books/_BookIndex.html">Books</a></li>
      <br />
      <li><a href="../Videos/VideosIndex.html">Videos</a></li><br />
     
      <li><a href="../links.html">Links</a></li><br />
      <li><a href="../info.html">∞ </a></li>

 

------------

 

IF I CENTER THE IMAGE:

img {
    display: block;

    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 32%;
    height: auto;
    }

The text menu goes down. 

PLEASE HELP!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH

You need 2 main containers, one 'left', one 'content', first 'left' floated left (obviously) the other below with display: block; not floated.

These should now sit side by side if widths allow. then add content and adjust to fit, style to your needs (nav in 'left', img in content).

A none floated block element will merge up together with floated by default, a floated element won't merge up with a block element such as div, as its forces everything down to new line.

You said you read the forum? what from 20 years ago? no one uses 'leftmargin="8 ', ' align="justify" ', ' <font size="2"> ' anymore.

Place what you want left in the id left column, and anything right of left column in id=content column.
