Last paragraph before code

Revised Discussion text at bottom of page 51 to read: “In the times before CSS was widely adopted by mainstream browsers, designers used the align attribute within the img element to move images to the side with text wrapping. W3C deprecated align and now recommends using float instead. Instead of just images, however, floats can be used with elements other than images to shift an item left or right within its current place. When using floats, you might want a keep text from wrapping. To work around that, use clear, which is shown in Figure 1-36.”

Figure 2-1

The location of the bottom-padding, bottom-border and bottom-margin labels are inconsistent with the rest of the image. Please adjust Figure 2-1: - Adjust the placement of border properties to be on the thin, solid black line that they rest on. - Review Figure 8-2 in CSS: The Definitive Guide, Third Edition for reference of how the properties should be listed.
