Oxygen XML Editor provides the possibility of floating an image to the left or right of blocks of content in DITA topics for both PDF and XHTML output.

To float an image, you simply need to set the outputclass attribute on the image element. The possible values are:
  • float-left
  • float-right
For example, the following DITA structure will present the image to the right of the paragraph content in the output:
<p><image href="../../images/Lilac.jpg" scale="45" outputclass="float-right"/>
  <b>Lilac</b> (<b>Syringa</b>) is a genus of about 20–25 species of flowering plants
  in the olive family (<b>Oleaceae</b>), native to Europe and Asia.
