View Full Version : Element being pushed down ???

01-03-2010, 03:59 AM

The main content box is being pushed down for no apparent reason - well, I'm sure there's a reason. I think I just need a second set of eyes to give mine a rest.

Any suggestions/fixes/ideas/myster solvers? Thanks.

Always remember kids, floated elements should appear BEFORE the elements in which you would like for the floated element to float. Also, be sure to assign a width to your floated element, otherwise it pushes everything else down...

Hello splice,
That is an awfully large background image that is only giving you white background. You could crop that header off it, use that as a background of #header and just use a #fff background on #container for a better affect.

Instead of using extra markup for clearing your floats, have a look at this method. (http://www.quirksmode.org/css/clearing.html)
