My DIV is not expanding correctly, should be easy fix.
The div in question is "cbg" ... I have a 900px by 1px jpeg i want to use as the background. Its 2/3 white (like the left column) and 1/3 black (like right column)
Any idea why it isn't expanding? You can see what I am trying to do if you enter in 1000px for the height attribute in the css.
Hi, the problem is that #cbg's childs are floats and as such they are collapsing that elements height. You need a clearing mechanism placed on it. Aka overflow:hidden;
However #info needs to be cleared from the header
Perfect.. thanks so much Ryan

Just google containing floats .
Basically it's very easy to understand.
If you have floats, the direct parent needs a clearing mechanism, overflowauto or hidden), the clearfix, a clearing element, etc.
It's very simple to understand.
