taking that as a challenge (:-}), I looked again at the spec. am I
right in the following crude view?

 <fo:float float="none">...      stays exactly where it is
 <fo:float float="left">...      sits on the left side of the
				 paragraph,  and text floats around it
 <fo:float float="right">...     sits on the right side of the
				 paragraph,  and text floats around it
 <fo:float float="before">...    goes to top of this, or subsequent pages

this appears to exclude floats going to the *bottom* of the page, if I
understand it right. surely this is unnaturely restrictive??? what if
the float looked better at the bottom of the page?

its also odd that "<fo:float>" defaults to float="none", and so does
not float at all.....

Anyway,  I am glad to say that PassiveTeX is incorrect, I now realise,
in that it fails to implement "left" and "right", and assumes "before"
if the value is not "none". what joy. I shall see if I can get left
and right to work.
