I have a div called #container with two inner divs floated left and right.  underneath #container I have another div called #footer which I want to clear:both as the right floated div in the #container has alot of content and overflows into the #footer.

however my code works in all browsers apart from IE7.  I cant show live example as its a page i'm working on in localhost.

i have set #footer to:

clear:both;
display:block

but no luck.
