    Clear both and position relative

    I like to test clear both and effects.

    div1(Floated Left)
    <div style="clear: both;"><!--This <div> as a separator--></div>
    Other div renders here now

    This will bring second DIV into bottom position under DIV1.

    What will happen if all this DIV's are inside one DIV with relative position.
    border: 0 none;
    position: relative;
    top: 0;

    Can all float elements influence main div position which should have CLEAR BOTH?
    #div2 {
    clear: both;
    margin: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    or it is correct to place position: absolute; and not clear: both; to place DIV element regardless of other DIV's?


    <DIV><!--This <div> acts as a relative position-->

    div1(Floated Left)
    div3(Floated Right)
    <div style="clear: both;"><!--This <div2> acts as a separator--></div>

    Other div renders here now

    I do not find relative positioning is useful at all. I'd suggest either the default (static) or absolute positioning are the most useful.
