What do you mean by "floating", exactly? Are you trying to draw a
watermark image on the page, behind the text? Does the image need to
flow with the text, attached to some particular word, like an <image>
tag? Does the text need to wrap around the image?
There may be a way to do what you need, but we'd need more information.
