You're saying that you can static but you could not have those two pictures and the text so...it's weird)
If I knew the properties of float, display, or the attribute align="" images.... it very quickly decided this issue, it can be solved in several ways....and it was not in buttrape.
Books I did not read it on the layout, in fits and starts only....
htmlbook website is good, there read about the various properties, tags, and so practice is needed....
Still there is a section tutorial KSS khtml if you want to read.
True there are examples where the tags using attributes, stylize, it is better not to do, or rather do, but with the mind and you better not have)
So the styles you only have to file the CSS.
Severstal take a huge lend some sort=)
