         I know from experience with this list that we are supposed to be 
embarrassed when we ask a question which has an answer in the FAQ. I also 
know from experience that using the FAQ is extremely difficult, or else I 
don't know how to use it. Even after seeing your response Philip, it took 
me about ten minutes to find the correct location of Q. 207. I used 
"flowing text" and then read through many entry titles in the reply.
         The fact is, the FAQ doesn't work right, because it is not 
organized properly. I don't mean this as a criticism, but rather as a 
comment. I also don't know for sure what to do about it.
         I suspect that hooking up to a really powerful local search 
engine, like google, would do the trick. I can usually find anything with 
         Indeed, typing "wrap text around figure latex" in the google 
command line gave me a wealth of clues, including some latex packages. I'm 
sure that using the FAQ and typing in the name of one of the packages with 
the FAQ search engine will do the trick.
