overflow: hidden visibility question

P: n/a

I have a box element that uses overflow: hidden and I want a link which
at the bottom of the element to be visible. I can't make the link visible.

Obviously I'm having problems so I was wondering if there's anything
other than overflow : hidden that will give me an absolute 'height' and
make the link visible.

Why is the link invisible-- is it overflowing?

You can add <div style="clear: both"></divat the end of the element
and use overflow: visible. That will usually work about the same
(although it might clear some other floats you didn't want it to)

"Clear: both" clears other floats I need. Yes, the link is in the
overflow. Nasty problem.

Post a url, I'm sure we'll think of something.

Thanks, I found a solution. I put the text in another div and put the
overflow:hidden in that div. Then I put the link(s) after the overflow.
