You're floating the right column to the left. Instead, use clear: left; to make it start on the next line.

#rightcolumn {
    clear: left;
    width: 380px;
}

Dear Arkinder,
Actually what is the job of the clear?

I'll let the W3C explain it. :)

If you would like for me to paraphrase it, just let me know.

Dear Arkinder,
I have visited the side. So the clear also have the left element in it I am confuse there?

No, the clear property makes the element be below the bottom outer edge of any floating element. Basically you could say that it makes it start on a new line.

Dear Arkinder,
Based on the link I notice this Value: none | left | right | both | inherit. So what are you trying to explain to me is not so clear?

The default value is none, and you cane set it to the others.

<div id="floating_division">
</div>

<div id="cleared_division">
</div>

#floating_division { width: 100px; float: left;}
#cleared_division { clear: left;}

Let's say that we wanted #cleared_division to start on a new line, or appear below #floating_division instead of beside it. We use clear: left; because #floating_division is being floated left. If #floating_division were floating right, you would use clear: right; If there were several divisions before #cleared_division, some floating left, and some floating right. Then you would use clear: both; which clears the left and right.

Let me know if you still don't understand.

Arkinder
