Buongiorno from medieval York UK :-)

Ok on this site http://tutorial.davidclick.com/max-2-column.html the footer clears the floated columns with a clear:both; e.g.

clear: both;
background: #ccc;
text-align: right;
padding: 20px;
height: 1%;

Having read a tutorial (which has confused me) they suggest there is another technique i can make the footer clear the floated columns by using overflow hidden e.g:

float: left;
width: 900px;


But alas when i try this the layout breaks :-( So my question is please: "What bit css would i need to add to the #content-container to clear the floated columns & push the footer in place if i did not want to add clear:both; in the footer?"

Any insights welcome :-)
