CSS Shapes for Floats Shape margin


Example

The shape-margin CSS property adds a margin to shape-outside.

CSS

img:nth-of-type(1) {
  shape-outside: circle(80px at 50% 50%);
  shape-margin: 10px;
  float: left;
  width: 200px;
}
img:nth-of-type(2) {
  shape-outside: circle(80px at 50% 50%);
  shape-margin: 10px;
  float: right;
  width: 200px;  
}
p {
  text-align: center;
  line-height: 30px; /* purely for demo */
}

HTML

<img src="http://images.clipartpanda.com/circle-clip-art-circlergb.jpg">
<p>Some paragraph whose text content is required to be wrapped such that it follows the curve of the circle on either side. And then there is some filler text just to make the text long enough. Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit Amet....</p>

In this example, a 10px margin is added around the shape using shape-margin. This creates a bit more space between the imaginary circle that defines the float area and the actual content that is flowing around.
