Problem with TLF - floating an inline image

I am running the latest version of Flash Builder 4 (4.0.1).  The problem that I having:

When I use an InlineGraphicsElement if aTextFlow (in a RichEditableText component), if I set a value for the "float" attribute of an <img> element; the image is not visible.  Without the float attribute, I see the image.

Is this a version problem with TLF?  How do I know which version of TLF that I'm using?  How do I install the correct version of TLF?

Thanks for the help.

Some code fragments:

The TextFlow string with "float":

<div color="#444444" fontFamily="Times New Roman" fontSize="20" paragraphSpaceAfter="15" textIndent="10">
<p><span color="0xff0000" >Alice, </span><span>really, was </span><span color="0xff0000" >beginning </span><span>to </span><span color="0xff00" >get very </span><span>tired of </span><span color="0xff00" >sitting </span><span>by her </span><span color="0xff00" >sister </span><span>on the </span><span color="0xff00" >bank, </span><span>and of </span><span color="0xff00" >having nothing </span><span>to do:  once or twice she had peeped into the book her </span><span color="0xff00" >sister </span><span>was reading, but it had no </span><span color="0x888800" >pictures </span><span>or </span><span color="0xffff" >conversations </span><span>in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought </span><span color="0xff0000" >Alice `</span><span>without </span><span color="0x888800" >pictures </span><span>or </span><span color="0xff00" >conversation?'</span></p>
<p>

<img float="left" width="100" source="assets/library/alice/images/White Rabbit.png" height="100"/>

<span>So she was </span><span color="0xffff" >considering </span><span>in her own mind</span><span>(</span><span>as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel </span><span color="0xff00" >very </span><span>sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be </span><span color="0x880000" >worth </span><span>the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White </span><span color="0xff00" >Rabbit </span><span>with pink eyes ran close by her.</span></p>
...
</div>

Without "float":

<div color="#444444" fontFamily="Times New Roman" fontSize="20" paragraphSpaceAfter="15" textIndent="10">
<p><span color="0xff0000" >Alice, </span><span>really, was </span><span color="0xff0000" >beginning </span><span>to </span><span color="0xff00" >get very </span><span>tired of </span><span color="0xff00" >sitting </span><span>by her </span><span color="0xff00" >sister </span><span>on the </span><span color="0xff00" >bank, </span><span>and of </span><span color="0xff00" >having nothing </span><span>to do:  once or twice she had peeped into the book her </span><span color="0xff00" >sister </span><span>was reading, but it had no </span><span color="0x888800" >pictures </span><span>or </span><span color="0xffff" >conversations </span><span>in it, `and what is the use of a book,' thought </span><span color="0xff0000" >Alice `</span><span>without </span><span color="0x888800" >pictures </span><span>or </span><span color="0xff00" >conversation?'</span></p>
<p>

<img width="100" source="assets/library/alice/images/White Rabbit.png" height="100"/>

<span>So she was </span><span color="0xffff" >considering </span><span>in her own mind</span><span>(</span><span>as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel </span><span color="0xff00" >very </span><span>sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be </span><span color="0x880000" >worth </span><span>the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White </span><span color="0xff00" >Rabbit </span><span>with pink eyes ran close by her.</span></p>
...

</div>

A bit of MXML code:

    <s:Group id="myGroup" width="100%" height="100%">
        <s:RichEditableText id="myRichText" lineBreak="toFit">
        </s:RichEditableText>
        <!--- Do not set the height of the RichEditableText - since it seems to prevent the appearance of the vertical scroll bars -->
    </s:Group>

And some Actionscript that adds components:

            scroller = new SxScroller();
            scroller.dx = dxScroller;
            scroller.dy = dyScroller;
            scroller.addEventListener(FlexEvent.CREATION_COMPLETE,scrollerEvent);
            scroller.addEventListener(FlexEvent.UPDATE_COMPLETE,scrollerEvent);

            richText = scroller.richText;
           
            richText.editable = false;  // textCharacter.enableEdit; // probably false.  TODO:  support true???
            richText.selectable = true; // required
           
            richText.width = dxRichText;

And finally the import of a TextFlow string:

richText.textFlow = TextFlowUtil.importFromString(textFlowString, WhiteSpaceCollapse.PRESERVE);

On the TextFlow forum I found the answer:

Use Flash Builder Hero, since it support TLF 2.0 out-of-the-box.  The InlineGraphics support several valuable attributes, including float="left" etc.

Beautiful.
