I am wokring on a CMS project.
I have a container DIV that contains a set of absolute position DIVs. The DIVs each have a TOP and LEFT value uset along with an optional width and height that defines their position within the parent DIV.
Because my child divs are absolute position they are outside of the page flow and so the conteiner DIV is overlapping part of the child divs
What I need to achieve is for my container div to automatically resize in height (in particular) and perhaps width (less important) so that the child items are always shown.
I have tried a variety of things with FLOAT and CLEAR but there seems to be no change - I am not sure if I am doing the wrong thing or applying to the wrong DIV.
I dont normally use absolute position so maybe I am missing something - the resulting solution needs to work in moden browsers and as many others as possible.
