[thelist] CSS positioning question

Thanks for the reply, Jono.

Wow. That does not sound like the behavior that I see at all. I want 
the ul centered in the free space to the left of the image. I am not 
too concerned about the text placement because all of the text on my 
real page fits within the ul's containing div's width of 15ex.

For me, in Safari [also 1.2.1 (v125.1)] the ul is centered across the 
whole page (or its containing div's containing div?) and the text is 
placed below the image. See 
<http://homepage.mac.com/ddulay/css_question/safari_sample.png> for a 
screenshot. Interestingly, my IE [Mac 5.2.3 (5815.1)] wraps the text 
for the long line. See 
<http://homepage.mac.com/ddulay/css_question/IE52Mac_sample.png>. This 
is the case for both of the macs I have available here. I don't have a 
windows machine handy at the moment.

Could you send me screenshots of what you are seeing?

Thank you,
Daniel Dulay
