How do I make an auto height div with a set minimum height?

Hi there,

I have a div as a staff profile box. It has a 100x130px portrait image floated on the left and text on the right alongside the image.

My div auto resizes as I type more text but if I delete text, it shrinks below the size of the floated image.

How can I get the div to be height:auto but with min-height; 130px ?

Or alternatively, how can I make it recognize the floated image as an element it cannot reduce past?

Sorry if this is a stupid question or dodgy syntax, I'm just starting out with CSS.

Thanks

Will

to give your div a minimum height I use the following:

#MyDivID {
       min-height: 130px;
       height: auto !important;
       height: 130px;
}
