    css div spacing proving within div ...

    Hello:

    I am trying to get all my divs inside 1 main one ( .pepe ), but it is not working properly. I am basically having problems with the .pepe part as I want all the others to fit inside that main div. I know this is simple but I am still struggling. Any help would be appreciated.


    PS: I know it is suppose to be external css file, but for testing I like to place inside the document so that the refreshing always loads the style. I also know the naming sucks, but again, it is just part of the testing part of this. I also know that I should NOT use tables for styling, and I won't as these will be data tables later in life. I would move away from data tables, but for now, I just have to get this working and any advice on that would also be appreciated.

    If you're talking about the main <div> not properly containing its children, you could sort that out with a clearing element:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Search Results</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    
    <link href="pepe.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    
    <style type="text/css">
    
    
    .pepe
    {
       border: 1px solid pink;
       padding:  25px;
       margin-bottom:  50px;
       margin: 0 auto;
    }
    
    
    #peter01
    {
    width: 25%;
    border: 1px solid green;
    height:  50px;
    float: left;
    }
    
    
    #peter02
    {
    width: 74%;
    border: 1px solid yellow;
    height:  175px;
    float: left;
    }
    
    #peter03
    {
    width: 84%;
    border: 1px solid pink;
    height:  55px;
    }
    
    #peter04
    {
    width: 45%;
    border: 1px solid red;
    height:  45px;
    float: left;
    }
    
    #peter05
    {
    width: 45%;
    border: 1px solid blue;
    height:  45px;
    float: left;
    }
    
    
    
    @media ( max-width:680px )
    {
       #peter05
       {
          clear: both;
          width: 75%;
          border: 1px solid blue;
          height:  45px;
          float: left;

    I'm not in a position right now (no access to Dreamweaver or such) to test your code, and I'm not swift with math calculations. But wonder why the main container is a .class and not a unique #ID div? Also when using margin shorthand with 2 values [margin: 0 auto;], the first value represents the -top and -bottom margins and the second value represents the -right and -left margins. You should not also specify margin-bottom: 50px; You can use shorthand for all 4 margins in a clock-wise manner (top, right, bottom, left) using 4 values like margin: 0 auto 50px auto;

    You could also have <br clear="all">, but that might be deprecated?

    When you figure the measurements, remember to calculate left and right padding, border, margin (x 2).

    Looking at another forum (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/s...thin-div-issue), I now realize the issue was a "collapsing" parent div containing floated child elements. I'd go with adding an overflow: hidden; to the parent div.

    Following up on reference to CSS box-model shorthand for margins (also borders, padding): 3 values would represent -top [right/left sides] -bottom.
