Please see tiki-view_articles.php
You will see that 2 articles have the image topic squished to the text.
In somes themes (ex.: tikineat), .articleimage is defined as below and it looks good.
margin-right : 20px;
However, in most themes (ex.: smartiki) it is not coming out so nicely
Should I add .articleimage for all themes?
Probably so. (In looking at the page source, I noticed nothing is specified for tikipedia.css's .articleimage, which is why the text is squished in this theme — my mistake, or should I say opportunity for improvement?
Hmm. When "Float text..." isn't checked, this is produced:
(img class="articleimage" alt="New Theme" border="0" src="topic_image.php?id=2" /)
When it is checked, this is produced:
(img style="margin-right:4px;float:left;" alt="New Theme" border="0" src="topic_image.php?id=2" /)
So checking "Floating the image..." adds, apparently via in-line CSS, a 4px right margin for the image.
