I'm having trouble with a simple Div layout. Below is my current code. I've also attached an image (sample_layout.jpg) I'm trying to achieve. My current code doesn't work right.


<div id="wrapper" style="width:900px;border:1px solid black;">
	<div id="header" style="float:left;background:#cccccc;width:600px;height:100px"><h1>Title</h1></div>
	<div id="utils" style="float:right;text-align:right;background:#eeeeee;width:200px;height:100px">Help</div>
	<div id="content" style="background:#666666">
		Main Content Content
	</div>
</div>

If you are trying to achieve this:

 screen caps
Try this code: (change the colors and the border, it's only for cosmetics )

<div id="wrapper" style="width:900px;border:5px solid #FF0;">
	<div id="header" style="float:left;background:#00F;width:600px;height:100px">
    	<h1>Title</h1>
    </div>
	<div id="utils" style="float:right;text-align:right;background:#0F0;width:200px;height:100px">
    	Help
    </div>
    <div style="clear:both;"></div>
	<div id="content" style="background:#F00">
		Main Content Content
	</div>
</div>

What's forgotten from time to time is the following:
<div style="clear:both;"></div>

Update without the header wrapper div which wasn't really needed:
   <div id="wrapper" style="width:900px;border:1px solid black;"> 
        <div id="header" 
            style="float:left;background:#cccccc;width:700px; height:100px"><h1>Title</h1></div> 
        <div id="utils" style="float:right;text-align:right;background:#eeeeee;width:200px;height:100px"><h1>Help</h1></div> 
   <div id="content" style="background:#666666;height:500px"> 
                <h1>Main Content</h1>
   </div> 
</div>

Thanks guys for the the layouts. Both are actually just what I needed. I couldn't decide which to choose so I split the points.
