Figure 4-2
In Chapter 3, you learned how to wrap text around an image. You can also use tables
to position text and images, such as the one shown in Figure 4-3; this is a borderless table
used to position text to the right of the image. One advantage of using a table to position
text and images instead of just wrapping the text around the image is that you have greater
control over the placement of the text and image. However, CSS is the preferred method
for structuring Web sites; tables are often found in legacy (i.e., older) Web sites.
