I’ve been working with a grid system for my latest project, and it’s been great. I don’t usually start with someone else’s code though, and so I missed something.

The grid CSS had this:
Of course, that’s great if you’re trying to contain both the text and the floated image in a parent container, but not so great if you’re trying to wrap text. Once “overflow: hidden” was removed for that p element, the text wrap and the image float behaved normally again.
