this is a general CSS question, though using it in WordPress. I'm just learning to position things around with CSS rather than tables. one problem i'm encountering is that, for example, if I want to create two columns of text on a single column page, i would do something like:
<div id="left"> text text text </div> <div id="right"> text text text" </div>
and in my CSS i would set the positioning to raise the second string of text up into the right hand side creating a second column next to the first.
the problem i encounter is that this creates a huge gap of empty white space on the page below the columns that is equal in length to the height of the 'top' position that i offset the second div upwards.
anyone familiar with this problem or how to solve it?
