Description Joshua Sherurcij 2006-08-12 04:28:35 UTC
Discussion on Wikisource seemed to suggest that it would be useful if there were
a tag similar to <gallery> that allowed 4 or 5 images to be displayed in a
VERTICAL gallery, rather than horizontally - allowing the images to run down the
side of the page - particularly for documents such as a 5 page letter or
something, so the original Gettysburg Address or whatever is uniform and
"galleries", but running vertically along the text.

Fixed in r19721 (in a much more flexible way than the suggestion).
Comment 2 ekb87ds02 2007-02-07 00:31:06 UTC
If you take a div as container, and put divs for the images inside of that and
float these to the left, they'll automatically order themselves into a grid (or
vertical strip if you make the container small enough). That way you don't have
to keep browser width in mind.

You do have to make sure the blocks are all the same height though. For an even
better solution I've tried to make the image divs behave like inline elements so
they would also line up if they aren't all the same height, but I wasn't able to
make that work.

That's bug 3276.  I'll respond there.
