Typically indicates whether a display object (for example, figure, table, boxed text) must be anchored in its exact location within the text or may float to a different location in the document (for example, top of the next page, into the next column, within a separate window). Also used to indicate that the display object should be placed in the margin or used as a background image behind the text.
|anchor||The object must remain in its exact location in the text flow.|
|background||The object (typically an image) is used as background displayed visually “behind” the narrative text.|
|float||The object is not anchored and may be moved to a new column, a new window, a new page, the end of the document, etc.|
|margin||In print, the object should be placed in the margin or gutter; online, the object should remain closely associated with the text.|
|Default value: float|
