I was (mistakenly) expecting 'align=left' to just place the table on the 
left side and not the floating behaviour. The reason I used it was because 
the table above was centered, and I wanted to remove that setting.

After some testing, I noticed that just using 'left' instead of 
'align=left' produced the desired result. However, when I tried again, I 
could see that using 'asdfasdfa' also works in the sense that it removed 
the centered setting...

So this comes down to a user error, perhaps made less easy to detect 
because no warning message is shown about me using an incorrect table 
attribute. I checked the PmWiki documentation which does indeed contain 
what you describe. It's all good then, except that in this case I would 
have saved some time if there had been some warning message available.
