    Paul O' B's 2 column layout/float collapse

    hello folks, I'm using Paul O' B's two column layout found here:http://www.pmob.co.uk/temp/2column_simple_1.htm

    But I've run into an issue. when I try to add text to my <p></p> tag, it collapses to the bottom of the page. I can't even seem to resize my <p> tag.

    I guess it would be easier to just show you:

    can someone help?

    Hi,

    Its nothing to do wit the layout it's because you have a block of text that has no spaces in it which breaks the layout. This would happen in any layout.

    Make sure your content has spaces in it.
    Code:
      <p>content, content, content, content, content, content,  content, content, content, content, content, content, 
    	  </p>
    Otherwise in IE it will stretch the div and break the layout and mozilla will just let the content overflow.

    Paul
