For some reason the the background color of the <div> 'container', which is white, isn't being respected in the browser, so the body bg color of grey is coming thru on the content portions. What am I missing here?

Thanks Experts!

Floated elements don't make their parent elements expand in height by default.

One solution would be to add this to your stylesheet:
#page_content {
  width: 100%;
  overflow: hidden;
}

Open in new window
