Hi,

I have created a div called "linklist" that I have floated to the right (using a class attribute). I positioned the text after it that is supposed to fill the space around it in the xhtml order of things. Still, the content is not flowing around the floated div. I switched the order of the content around and this did not work either. I re-read the behavior of floats in my css 2.0 programmers reference but it does not address this and I did research online and didn't find this issue.

My css and xhtml both validated.

Here is a link to the page:

The lower content should raise up to fill the void to the left of the links div.

Any thoughts?

Thank you much,

maybe drop the clear:both

maybe drop the clear:both from the h2, as you are telling it to go under the float.
It's doing exactly as you told it to.

Oh wow, I didn't even think

Oh wow, I didn't even think of that clear: both in the h1. That did it! Thanks so much. Boy, I wish I would have seen that. Thanks again!
