Wordpress CSS question

Hi Experts,

I did a custom theme for a WP site and when I add an image in wp page editor and choose right align it appears fine in the editor but when I preview the page it's left aligned.

Seems that it's following the <p> tag left align property and my custom CSS doesn't have the styles to do the image alignment needed by the editor.  (alignright size-medium wp-image-150)

where are these apparently default styles typically found?  Is there some default style sheet or style that are to be included in all themes?

i.e.:  <a href="http://website.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/stock-photo-13325752-woman-smile.jpg"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-150" title="stock-photo-13325752-woman-smile" src="http://website.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/stock-photo-13325752-woman-smile-300x206.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="206" /></a>

Thanks,

HNM

This is the default CSS code that Wordpress uses, just add them to your stylessheet and change it to your needs:

img.alignright {float:right; margin:0 0 1em 1em}
img.alignleft {float:left; margin:0 1em 1em 0}
img.aligncenter {display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto}
.alignright {float:right; }
.alignleft {float:left; }
.aligncenter {display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto}
