Tutorial 20: CSS Floats, Part I - HTML with Style | 7
In this tutorial, you learned how the float and clear properties are supposed to work. In actual fact, they work in sometimes radically different ways in modern browsers. We'll take a look at some useful applications that work despite these bugs in the next tutorial.
Floats enable you to create multi-columnar layouts, like the ones we created in Tutorial 19, without any of the disadvantages. Unfortunately they don't work well with all browsers. Can you create a style sheet that will have the same effect as those in Tutorial 19, but uses floats instead? You might want to get the Mozilla browser to test your style sheet.
