If there are no positioning or sizing styles attached to either div, then the normal action is for the outer to expand with the inner.
However, if the inner div is floated, it is taken out of the document flow and the outer div will not surround it - this is the proper behaviour that IE gets wrong. If this is your case, read the section on clearing floats in Paul's "CSS FAQ" sticky thread at the top of this forum.
If the outer div has a height set, then the proper action is for the height to remain at the setting and excess content will spill outside it. IE ignores the set height and expands the outer anyway.
If you are not sure which scenario applies to your situation, post up the code you are using (including css).
