I seems my brain is wired not to handle automatic expansions of DIVs. What should I keep in mind when building web UIs to alway ensure that my DIVs expand?

If you mean expanding vertically to match the content then you basically just need to make sure you give them a:

    overflow: auto;

Some browsers have issues rendering container divs properly, because of measuring bugs. Can you give an example?

For most scenarios, placing an empty at the end of container div with style="clear:both" do the magic. For example :

<div>
....
....
..some stuff..
....

<div style="clear:both;"></div>
</div>
