[reportlab-users] flowing images in paragraphs

Hey everybody.

I'm trying to have a paragraph with images in a pdf, but I'm having
problems with flowing text. The image I use is a bit taller than one
line of text, so the text that comes after it just overlaps the image.
Any ideas how I could solve this problem ?

I'm using reportlab.platypus.paragraph.Paragraph, and I already feed the
proper RML into it (I hope). Looks something like this (it comes from a
RTE, so users can add images wherever they want in the content):

<img width="25mm" height="25mm" src="http://...url/to/image.png"
valign="top" /> <br/> Hello world ! This is a link: <a
href="http://www.google.com/" color="blue">Google</a> . <u>And now
<b>just</b> some dummy</u><strike>text to fill up</strike> <br/> some
space... <br/> <br/> <b>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur
adipisicing elit,</b><i>sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et
dolore magna aliqua</i>. Ut <font color="#bc6e6e" >enim </font>ad <font
backColor="#ffdfbf">minim </font>veniam, quis nostrud exercitation
ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

The rest of the tags I got working properly, with bold, italic, strike,
etc. Only the image seems problematic. And if I use valign="bottom" for
example, it will overlap the text that's on top of the paragraph, which
is also not good.

Thanks in advance for any tips/help.
