While the .tright css class has a "clear:right", .tleft lacks such a "clear"
declaration, so that two consecutive left-aligned images are rendered
side-by-side instead of one above the other.
Fixed in r17986.
Yikes! That wasn't a bug! That was a feature, one that the Wikipedia image system depended upon (see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Picture_tutorial#Wiki_markup_and_CSS). There must be some way to
reclaim this functionality of having horizontally aligned images that wrap the page. Numerous Wikipedia
pages have been upset by this change.
Robert, the sensible thing there would surely be to
not float those images...? Certainly I would not consider
it desirable behavior for floats to stack horizontally.
Let's keep this discussion to bug 8170.
