Regarding Aunt Marge's inflation, I don't remember ever reading in the books that she was ever restored (deflated). Nor was it seen in the films.

Did that ever happen? Or is she still out there, floating?

Yes, Aunt Marge was successfully deflated!

"Eat, Harry, you look dead on your feet. Now then... You will be pleased to hear that we have dealt with the unfortunate blowing-up of Miss Marjorie Dursley. Two members of the Accidental Magic Reversal Department were dispatched to Privet Drive a few hours ago. Miss Dursley has been punctured and her memory has been modified. She has no recollection of the incident at all. So that's that, and no harm done." [Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic]

Prisoner of Azkaban - page 44 - US Hardcover

In the film, Fudge basically gives the same speech as quoted above when Harry arrives at The Leaky Cauldron, as if he's dictating a letter to Harry. In the film they do not show Aunt Marge being deflated. Fudge just notes that she has been and that her memory has been modified.

    Hmmm, so I missed it in both the book and the film! Duh. Anyway, now I can sleep easily again, thanks. Mar 14, 2012 at 11:28

    Having nightmares about the fate of poor Aunt Marge, are we? That would be dreadful, wouldn't it?

I am not sure about the movie, but in the book Cornelius Fudge said that there was a team sent to deflate her and alter her memory. Therefore Yes, she was deflated.
