you can't. the best way to put two divs next to each other is using float
all those options are valid. there are many ways to clear floats. option (a) is the best way, option (b) is when a height varies (possible for comments and columns that increase size because of user-inputs), option (c) is for a lazy web developer or someone who wants to be extremely cautious about clearing.
apprently clearfix is better than clearing from the bottom browser-support wise, but I have seen no difference between browsers
