Threaded View

my problem seems to be quite simple but i haven't found the answer yet:

i have one outer div containing two absolutely positioned inner divs.
The height of the inner divs varies on the amount of content. Now the
outer div's height should grow with the inner divs' height. how can this
be achieved?


Thanks for your help!

Think about what you're trying to achieve, and find a different
solution. Lots of CSS layouts here:

You would probably have to use tables to do simulate that. <insert your
