Use of overflow: hidden; on nested divs

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

On one of my pages,

I'm using overflow: hidden to keep the desired presentation of the content
of div's in two columns within another div. I started putting this together
some time ago, so I can't remember where I got that idea from. It certainly
came from somewhere else, I wouldn't have thought of that myself.

My question is, is that a "proper" use of the overflow property, and if not,
are there any suggestions to re-code appropriately? The basic HTML
validates, and I think I've used the HTML elements in their correct semantic
manner (most of the time anyway!)
