    resolved [RESOLVED] Float / Clear Problems

    Hey guys...
    I'm having a problem with floating objects, maybe someone here can help.

    The basic format of the site is this:

    HTML Code:
    <div id="leftNav">
      left navigation
    </div>
    
    <div id="mainContent">
      main content
    </div>
    CSS:
    #left_nav {float:left; width:14em;}
    #mainContent {width:auto; margin-left:15em;}
    This works fine to have the two columns (navigation on left, all content on right).

    BUT - in the main content, I often have to float elements which means that I also have to clear them. But when I clear anything, it drops below leftNav. Check out the screenshot if it's unclear what I'm talking about.

    I've tried a million different things, including adding float:none; to the mainConent div, but nothing I do works. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks a lot,
    Dan

    Float the images right, and then clear right.

    hmmm... that could work too...

    I posted this on another forum as well, and I was told to try adding overflow:hidden to the mainContent div (it worked perfectly).

    Thanks a lot, KDLA!
