How to move a span after an img?

Tags: html,css,css3

Problem :

I have some html which is automatically generated and I would like to know how to move a span after the image. can anyone help ?

Here is the HTML

 <span>closed</span> <img alt="Click to reset" src="xxx" class="">

So if you notice that the span comes first and then the img.

I need it so it renders, the opposite like so

 <img alt="Click to reset" src="xxx" class=""> <span>closed</span> 

As i say i can't touch the HTML, its automatically generated but I think there is a CSS trick to get around this right ?


I forgot to mention that these two elements are wrapped in a <div>.

So i.e:

 <div><span>closed</span> <img alt="Click to reset" src="xxx" class=""></div>

Solution :

You can you the Adjacent sibling selectors from the span point of view and change the image display and float rules.

div span + img { 
  display: block;
  float: left;

/* clarfix the float */
div:after {
  content: ".";
  clear: both;
  display: block;
  visibility: hidden;
  height: 0;
  <img alt="Click to reset" src="" class="" />   

Another option would be to use a flex layout and change the order of your elements like so:

div {
    display: flex;
    align-content: flex-start;

span { 
    order: 1;
    align-self: flex-end;
  <img alt="Click to reset" src="" class="" />
