If the align property is not set on the object, the table is aligned to the left edge of the available space as a block element. If the property is set to left or right, however, the table is aligned as a "floating" object. Successive text and other elements flow to the right of the table if align is set to left, or to the left of the table if align is set to right. For more information, see the styleFloat property.
