@willthemoor - Thanks for your comment. I might be missing it, but what is the problem with arranging your HTML in a certain way that can help when using floats?
@Gunnar Bittersmann - Thanks for your thoughts. I don’t think it’s realistic to avoid floats, nor do I think it’s necessary. With a proper understanding they can be used effectively—as they were designed.
@nd_macias - Thank you, would love a translation!
@extravaganzasd - The footer had no defined width as the boxes did in the earlier example. It defaulted to auto which was the given space beneath the navigation.
@Farid Hadi - Thank you, and will get that corrected!
@viktord - Without knowing the HTML, I would suggest wrapping the paragraph of text and the image in a div, and setting overflow hidden on that div.
@Divya Manian - Thank you for the link, I will be sure to read up on that.
@ricksuggs - Thanks!
