I'm having a very annoying and simple problem. Sad Why following code does not work:

#Top 
{
  float : left;
  width : 100%;
  height : 50px;
  background-color : #ddeeff;  
}

#Top2 
{
  float : left;
  width : 100%;
  height : 50px;
  background-color : #ffeedd;  
}

#Box 
{
  position : absolute;
  top : 200px;
  left : 20px;
  
  border : 1px solid #000;
  padding : 10px;
}

HTML part:

<DIV ID="Top">
  Hello world!
</DIV>

<DIV ID="Top2">
  Hello world!!
</DIV>

<DIV ID="Box">
  Box
</DIV>

In Mozilla 1.6 and Opera 7.23 Everything works just fine. But in Internet explorer 6 I don't see the box at all!

Alternatively you could just remove the floats? What is the need for floating an element that is 100% width?
