Seems I can't answer in the other forum, but seeing as I am an utter newbie here, I am not surprised at not knowing the rules.

So a quick thank you in here instead

<style>
  .columns { float: left; }
  p { padding: 10px; border: 1px solid gray; }
</style>
<p>
  <p class="columns">Thank</p>
  <p class="columns">you</p>
  <p class="columns">very</p>
  <p class="columns">much!</p>
</p>

This, has obviously been an irritating problem for people before me, including Tony, and they have solved it way before I encountered the beast.
So thank you, Tony for your hack.

Sébastien

:? To what are we referring to here? what other forum? why can you not answer in it? what rules are not known? what was an irritating problem? what beast! where!

Why so cryptic? Smile

Are we in fact referring to Tony's clearfix clearing rules for floats?

Shock I didn't start it - It's not my fault Sad I must be going mad. I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us ...very hard to explain why you're mad, even if you're not mad...

This must be the dark side of the forum!

I've been mad, remain mad, and manage to get madder with each passing day, I turn madness into an art form it's the only thing I truly excel at.

This is the heart of darkness, the thread of despair, the abbys. Smile

and I still blame Roy!!

Why so cryptic? Smile

Are we in fact referring to Tony's clearfix clearing rules for floats?

In reverse order:
Yes; the problem, the irritating, annoying beast of a problem, the ones from this fora, because only mods can, the newbie/howto/whatever forum, already answered that one.

Thanks again!
My site looks pretty nifty thanks to you! (magnien.net/bd2/ => no content for now, working on the presentation).

Love you all guys, gotta play some Oblivion, though, see you.

Oh! And stop the Pink Fold allusions, no one should be disrespectful to the authors of such beautiful lines as "Will the scaly Armadildo catch me!"

Yeah well now you see where cryptic posts will get you, all the stranger forum members come crawling out of the woodwork and it can take an age to calm them down and restore normality to proceedings which is a task I seldom savour but find the best way is to play along, gradually calming things down until they can be returned to normal forum duties, I often wonder whether the fact that they all seem to be called gurus is significant though!
