The best way to demonstrate the ebb and flow of the various image positioning options is to nestle them snuggly among an ocean of words. Grab a paddle and let’s get started. Be sure to try it in RTL mode. Left should stay left and right should stay right for both reading directions. On the topic of alignment, it should be noted that users can choose from the options of None, Left, Right, and Center. If the theme has added support for align wide, images…

The paragraph block is the default block type.  It should not have any alignment of any kind. It should just flow like you would normally expect. Nothing fancy.

Neither of these paragraphs care about politics, but this one is bold, medium sized and has a drop cap. This paragraph is centered. This paragraph prefers Jazz over Justin Timberlake. It also uses the small font size. This paragraph has something important to say:  It has a…
