Hi everyone :).

Strange situation with this code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
  <div align="center">
    <div style="width: 500px; background-color: blue">
      <div style="width: 200px; float: left">
        <p>Some text.</p>
      <div style="width: 210px; float: right">
        <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/13/DuskyDolphin.jpg/220px-DuskyDolphin.jpg" alt="Dolphin">

What is the problem?
One problem i can see is that u've not cleared the float, so you wont be seeing the blue background color of the container div.

Thanks. Which div should I cleared, please?

You need to add a height to the div for it to show the background-color in Chrome & Firefox.

Alternatively, you could add the following after the div containing the picture of the dolphin. <div style="clear: both;"></div>

Here is a link which explains the use of float and clearing: Click Here

Another way is set the blue color div with overflow: hidden;
But this way, if there is any overflow items especially the absolute positioned one, it will be hidden.

Thank you for all replies :).
