Here is the general rule when working with floated elements. In the div wrapper that contains any floated elements, make sure to add "overflow: hidden" in the wrapper css.

For example, if you have a structure like this:

<div id="wrapper">
<div style="float: left;">...</div>
<div style="float: right;">...</div>
</div>



you would add "overflow: hidden" to the #wrapper css.

#wrapper {
overflow: hidden;
}

When you add left and right columns on the Layout tab, the overflow is handled for you. If you are adding custom divs, you have to add the overflow yourself for now.
