background and height containing div

P: n/a
Hi,

At: http://www.sylviastrijk.nl/examenklas/
In Internet Explorer we see the background of the wrapping div
(#namenlijst) (with the columns (kolom 1, kolom 2, kolom 3) inside) as
far as the content inside it. In Firefox you see no height for the
wrapping div and the background-color won't stretch to the end of the
columns. The view in internet explorer is the desired one. What might be
the reason that FF has no height for the #namenlijst div and how can I
make it to work in FF as well?

Thanks in advance

Have a look at the short thread of 22 June 12.05hrs (Dutch
time)(GMT+1) about the same thing with subject:
"div background shows fine in IE but not in FF or Netscape"

Okay, I have to clear floating divs in its last content to make it's
background visible. Still seems to be unexpected behaviour to me,
although it should be defined that way.

Perhaps if you read the CSS specs, you would learn that it is not really
unexpected behavior at all.
<URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#floats>

If reading specs is not your cup of tea, a few minutes with google could
probably point you to a number of articles and tutorials that say the
same thing in different ways. You should have found your own answer
there, too.

In Summer, Dutch time should be GMT+2.

No, it's not. GMT itself in summer is UTC+1 already.

Wrong. British clock time in summer (BST) is GMT+1.

GMT and UTC are effectively the same (modulo some very fine detail
about the odd leap second, which JRS will surely leap to explain).

Ow. okay :-)
I now wonder then - are we Central Europeans living in CET which is
GMT+2 in summer, or are we in CET+1 in summer?
