Making a container with height > its internal two columns

P: n/a
JJ
I'm looking to use two div elements to create two columns within a
container div element. I'd like the container div to dynamically have
a height greater than the internal column with the greatest height. Is
there a way to accomplish this without the use of tables?

I know that absolute & float elements aren't part of the flow of the
page, but the examples I've seen suggest using either one of those
approaches for a column layout.

Thanks.

Trying to understand what you are talking about. Do you mean when the
positioned element flows over the other one? Like this
