[drupal-devel] css clear use

I've run into the same problem.  It makes table-free column-based layouts 
extremely difficult when a div in the main content area clears to below the 
bottom of the left nav bar (itself a float-left div).  Why it should I don't 
know, but it drives me batty. :-)

Is there a better way of handling it, or some work-around?

exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
