Float Classes

Foundation includes a handful of helpful float classes to add common positioning behaviors to elements.

Float Left/Right

You can change the float behavior of an element by adding the .float-left or .float-right classes to an element. To clear floats, add the class .clearfix to the parent element.

Float Left/Right classes use `!important` to ensure they aren't overridden by more specific selectors. This framework conscientiously avoids using `!important` declarations. This is one of the few components that does.

Float classes don't flip direction in a right-to-left environment—left always means left, and right always means right.

<div class="callout clearfix">
  <a class="button float-left">Left</a>
  <a class="button float-right">Right</a>
</div>

Float Center

Okay, it’s not really a float, but you can add the .float-center class to an element to engage the automatic margin centering trick. Note that this will only work on elements with an absolute width, which means not a percentage or auto width.
