I get the same results in IE7 and FF3.5.
The two inner divisions will not show entirely in the container for nuthin.
This did not used to be such a pain. I'm wondering if the browser writers
have changed the behavior of css.

<div style="border:solid 2px #f00; padding:10px;">
<div style="float:left; border:solid 2px #0f0; padding:10px">
123
</div>

<div style="float:left; border:solid 2px #0f0; padding:10px">
abc

Not that you bother to answer any advice I give you, but try overflow:
hidden; on your container. Are you perhaps interested to know why you
are having this trouble rather than this or that fix?

I am in a bad mood it seems!

Me two. I just get so frustrated sometimes I can't seem to recall simple
fixes.
Thanks for the kick.

No, they have not.

You forgot to ask dorayme why you are having this trouble so she could point
you to her rather excellent series of articles on the matter.

>> I am in a bad mood it seems!


Easy for this to happen with RtS.

You two, or you three?

You don't *need* "simple fixes" if you truly understood what float really
does.

I am in a better mood now that I have had a drink! Richard Newsguy has
driven me to it. Let's all of us start a *barn* dance? We will float
around the ballroom and not worry about overflows, the more the
merrier... <g>

Nah. I don't dance, well not when I am sober anyway. I'll just accompany you
over to the scrollbar for another G&T.

I hope so, my son and I were in the kitchen dancing to Walking After
Midnight by Patsy Kline last night. It's not easy dancing with a six
year old.

Just don't let them make like they are two years old and leap up on you
in their dancing excitement, they are bad enough when they are two on
the parental spine! <g>
