left-aligned


Explanation:
Hi !

When you visit the following site, you will se a sample of a text which is left-aligned :

http://www.unimedia.fr/homepage/divirion/cours/web_pao/pao_3...

Ce n'est pas le seul choix possible. La composition en drapeau est l'inverse de la justification : les lignes ne sont alignées que d'un seul coté, l'autre étant irrégulier. On appelle "ferrer" cette notion de calage du texte sur un de ses bords verticaux. On distingue alors...

- texte "au fer à gauche" (ou "justifié à gauche")

In English, this is called "left-aligned".

Examples:


Left-aligned Column -
