- Specifies how an element should float.
- Is used for positioning and formatting content e.g. let an image float left to the text in a container.
- Can have one of the following values: left (the element floats to the left of its container), right (the element floats to the right of its container), none (the element does not float; will be displayed just where it occurs in the text; this is default), inherit (the element inherits the float value of its parent).
- In its simplest use can be used to wrap text around images.
