css problem

Rod
Hi,

I would like to do an easy thing but after more than 2 weeks I cant' find a
way to do it.
Here is what I would like:
I would like to display a dynamic list of products with a photo and a title,
that's it.
But they should be within a DIV (or a span etc).
This div should have a picture as a background (to simplify it should have a
color).

impossible to do it like this:

PICTURE 1 PICTURE 2 PICTURE 3
titel1 title 2 title3
PICTURE 4 PICTURE 5 ....
titel4 title 5 ...

I did it using FLOAT, but it displays the items OUTSIDE the main div which
contain the background picture (ie, firefox, netscape)!
Acually, at the end, AFTER the main DIV.

Here is a short example which display 2 products:
<div class="listProd ucts">
<div class="products ">
<div>
<img src="xxxx" width="200" height="149">
</div>
<div>
title1
</div>
</div>

<div class="products ">
<div>
<img src="xxxx" width="200" height="149">
</div>
<div>
title1
</div>
</div>

</div>

style:
..listProducts {
background-color: #FF4500;
border: thin solid Black;
}
.products {float:left;wid th:33ex;}

you can see the products are outside the main DIV!!!

any idea?

thanks

Rodolphe

Of course they are. Floating takes something out of the normal flow. So
the .listProducts box has no .products boxes content.

Make a clearing div, after the items, but inside the
surrounding div.
Like this:
<div style="clear:bo th"></div>
