Hi, all,

I'm using TeXShop on Mac OS X on 10.3.9, and having a problem with  
the 'floatflt' environment: following the 'floatingtable' instance,  
all paragraphs (started with hard newline) have their first two lines  
indented to align with the text flowing around (to the right of) the

suggested (on the texhax list) to try 'wrapfig'.

This is on 10.3.9 with a kind-of-old install from Gerben.  I've got a  
more recent install from Gerben on a 10.4.1 system, and the problems  
there are even skankier (so I won't go into them here).
