well, as you desire, not as it should ;)

exactly. if you clear both floats, well, um, they're cleared, right?


a couple questions:

1. do you specifically need three divs per line, as your original sketch shows? otherwise, trash the spacer div and just let them float left until there's no more room, at which point, they'll just drop to a new line as needed

2. have you analyzed the content semantically to make absolutely sure you're not avoiding tables without reason? (I know you're smarter than that, Jay, but I've done it myself, and I'm smarter than that too ;)

3. can container0 be floated *right*, independent of nav? if so, you might could have spacer only clear:left, leaving the right floatage of container0 alone, affecting only the left floatage of them little internal divs.

4. consider asking on css-d. they be smart people there, much smarter than me
