css: How to float div according to 2nd div in hierarchy


Tags: css,layout

Problem :

I need this blue div to be next to red div, while yellow div must remain in place.

How to do this without using something like position:absolute, float:none - etc... nasty hacks?



Solution :

Add margin-top: -50px to the big div.

Alternatively, you can also wrap the small divs in another div, and float that. Depends on the situation.

And position: absolute, float: none are not nasty hacks at all, they are the best friends of a sitebuilder :).
