Wrapping text around images and tables

Hi There,
Can anyone tell me how to wrap text in dreamweaver around a table. Outside of the table not inside.

As well, I've been able to get text to wrap around an image but there is no space or gap between the two. I'd like a bit of a gap so it looks cleaner. How can I achieve this.
<font size="4" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">How much 
            water?</font> </h3>
        </div>
        <blockquote> 
          <div align="left"><img src="glasswater.jpg" width="200" height="193" align="left"> 
          </div>
          <div align="left"> <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">There 
            are a variety of reasons to drink plenty of water each day. Adequate 
            water intake prevents dehydration, cleans out the body, and promotes 
            healing processes. Substituting water for beverages high in calories 
            can also help control weight. Follow the steps below to make sure 
            you're getting enough of this most basic necessity.</font></div>

            determine how much water you need. Divide your weight (in kilograms) 
            by 30 (ex. somebody weighing 70 kg is going to need 2.3 litres per 
            day). Keep in mind that these recommended intake numbers are generalisations.

You will have to play with the div's width to get it to your liking but basically you just place padding around the image.

I don't think you can, not like Word would.  You can align (or float is using css) the table left or right and the text should flow to the other side if the table gives it room.

Thanks for your help..but I found the solution it's the "V Space" and "H Space" variables and they worked perfectly.
